If you have an existing view, and you don't want it anymore, you can delete it by using the "DROP VIEW viewName" statement as shown in the following script:

mysql> DROP VIEW faqComment;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT * FROM faqComment;
ERROR 1146 (42S02): Table 'fyi.faqcomment' doesn't exist
