What is the difference between drop table and delete table in SQL Server

0 votes

What is the distinction between the following two in SQL Server?

  • If you want to open a new query editor window, choose Drop table from the right-click menu when you are on a database object (table or view).
  • To delete a database object (table or view), use the right-click menu.

Both of them accomplish the identical action, according to my testing. Why would there be two choices for the same thing? Is choosing Delete merely a crude method of removing the DB object?
