Hi,

I know how to drop and create a table, but I was wondering if there was a way to drop a table and recreate the table when it hits the beginning of each month. If so, how would I write that in my store Procedure?

yep...you'll write it in same was as DROP and CREATE

only difference is you'll create a sql server agent job and call the store procedure from it

Then schedule the job to be executed monthly by giving a suitable date.

Why? Just to clear it out? Use TRUNCATE TABLE <table name> for that.
