The 'if exists' clause protects against an SQLite error raised if 
you ask to delete a table that doesn't exist.  The code will work 
without it if the table exists, but will exit without creating the 
table if not.

Thanks for a useful addition to the Org babel SQLite 
documentation.  I agree with you that Org mode tables are a 
convenient way to enter SQL data, keeping in mind that table 
columns can't be rearranged without changes to the SQL code.

All the best,

Thomas S. Dye
