VARRAY type, or nested table type. When you drop a type body, the type specification still exists, and you can re-create the type body. Prior to re-creating the body, you can still use the type, although you cannot invoke its member functions.
The type body must be in your own schema or you must have the
TYPE system privilege.
The name of the schema containing the type. The default is your own schema.
The name of the type body to be dropped.
Restriction on type_name You can drop a type body only if it has no type or table dependencies.

data_typ1. See "ADT Examples" for the example that creates this ADT.
