  • Looks like the drup_ prefix is automaticly added to your query. Now it is looking for the table drup_drup_Detailstable

Remove the 'drup_' prefix from your db_query call. Since you define a prefix in settings.php, using {Detailstable} will automatically add the prefix on lookup.


This can be done from phpmyadmin or drush.

drush sql-cli

mysql> DELETE FROM field_config WHERE field_name = [‘field_DELETED_FIELD’];

mysql> DELETE FROM field_config_instance WHERE field_name = [‘field_DELETED_FIELD’];

Clear cache after deleting i.e. drush cc all
