Could someone please tell me what code I should use to reverse the first line of the follwing code and remove the table that was created in my database?

ALTER TABLE newsletters ADD template varchar(64) AFTER locked;
CREATE TABLE `newsletters_to_products` (
`newsletter_id` INT( 11 ) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL ,
`products_id` INT( 11 ) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY ( `newsletter_id` , `products_id` )
);

Many thanks

--to remove the template column:
ALTER TABLE newsletters DROP COLUMN template

-- to remove the created table:
DROP TABLE newsletters_to_products


however, the AFTER locked clause is not part of SQL synthax, as I know, and
the CREATE sythax is wrong because for INT (integer) type you don't specify size lke (11). so I doobt it run succesfully.

Blimey! I have spent days trying to get this working properly due to some error and even after everyone's galant efforts of trying to help me, I decided to scrap it as it just wasn't happening, hence needing the reversal.

Now I'm thinking that because of the error you've pointed out, this could have been the route of the problem. (I don't know as I'm not too clever when it comes to this kind of thing, hence why I try to get help wherever I can!)

Thank you for your help
