As I try to progress the creation of a 'safe' db copy I am thinking it will help to delete the table IF it exists in a remote database.  This will mean changes in table structure of the master will always be reflected in the test mule.

I will use select to Insert a new table into the closed db copy so how can I test if the table exists in the db and delete it if so.  Note the script runs from the source db which WILL be open and the target may or may not be open so how can I delete a specific table in the copy irrespective of the db being open and / the table existing therein.
