How to Truncate a Table in Snowflake

Truncate a Table in Snowflake

We will use the Truncate command to empty the data of our Snowflake table. The syntax for the Truncate:

truncate table name
truncate users1;

If the table has the “ÄUTO_INCREMENT” column, the counter for it will not reset. This behaviour is different from other databases like SQL SERVER, for example, where we don’t require to reset the counter yourself.
