FUNCTION statement drops a standalone function from the database.
The function must be in your schema or you must have the
PROCEDURE system privilege.
Name of the schema containing the function. Default: your schema.
Name of the function to be dropped.
The database invalidates any local objects that depend on, or invoke, the dropped function. If you subsequently reference one of these objects, then the database tries to recompile the object and returns an error if you have not re-created the dropped function.
If any statistics types are associated with the function, then the database disassociates the statistics types with the
FORCE option and drops any user-defined statistics collected with the statistics type.
