I would like to handle exceptions using PL SQL for the drop able and create table scripts. This would happen when I initially set up the db scripts, I would have a drop table statement preceeding the create table statement. But when the script is being run for the first time, the drop table would result in an error and I would like to handle this error and proceed with the create table. Any suggestions or pointers on how to do this.
Found out a way to do this. Wrote a Procedure that would take a varchar as parameter and check if this parameter is a table and if yes, it will drop the table and if the table does not exist, the thrown exception will be handled properly and the procedure returns.
