Currently I am using htmldb.oracle.com but surprisingly I am able to create tables and show its records but i am not able to delete the content or drop the tables;

I have schema named RACHIT and I have created table named rachit.

When I select * from tab; It doesn't show rachit table

I have created another table anusha and resham. It shows these tables when I select * from tab;

Even I can insert the records in all the three tables and see the content of table but I cant delete the records nor I can drop the tables

on

delete * from anusha;

It says

ORA-00903: invalid table name

You'll have better luck with htmldb questions like this on the OTN Oracle HTMLDB discussion forum, which is quite active.

Next reference says sql supports both syntax (i.e delete * from table_name and delete from tablename)

http://www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_delete.asp

I think oracle does not allow

delete * from table_name

You syntax is wrong.
scott@9i > delete * from emp;
delete * from emp
       *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00903: invalid table name


scott@9i > delete from emp;

14 rows deleted.
