How do i Delete a SQL View object once I create the view.

Once I run this query and it creates the view:

USE DATBS_A
GO
CREATE VIEW SUMMARY AS
SELECT person_no, assignment_no, start_date
FROM summary
WHERE role = 'Worker'

How can i remove the view so I can execute the same statement?

Basically that was one of my requirements to ensure it checks to see if there is an old and update it with the new. I got most of it done but dont seem to figure out why my data is not appearing. It doesnt appear at all, but only when i run hte SELECT statement by itself. if i run the entire thing, Query was done succesfully however i dont see the results.

There seems to be some confusion here:
CREATE VIEW: Creates the view it does not execute it.  In order to execute it you need to do something like this:
SELECT person_no, assignment_no, start_date
FROM SUMMARY

The view seems to have the same name as the table. This isn't possible!

CREATE VIEW
vw_SUMMARY
AS
SELECT person_no, assignment_no, start_date
FROM summary
WHERE role = 'Worker'

--and if you want to remove the view again:

drop view vw_summary
