DROP CAST - remove a cast
DROP CAST [ IF EXISTS ] (sourcetype AS targettype) [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]
DROP CAST removes a previously defined cast.
To be able to drop a cast, you must own the source or the target
data type. These are the same privileges that are required to
create a cast.
- IF EXISTS
Do not throw an error if the cast does not exist. A notice is issued
in this case.
The name of the source data type of the cast.
The name of the target data type of the cast.
These key words do not have any effect, since there are no
dependencies on casts.
To drop the cast from type text to type int:
DROP CAST (text AS int);
The DROP CAST command conforms to the SQL standard.
CREATE CAST [create_cast(7)]
