tableName The name of the table
columns Contains an 'enumeration' of all the columns that the table have.
To create a new table in the database, the create table statement is used. A table definition consists of a list of columns, their types, and any integrity constraints.
You may want to create a duplicate of the table you are using
CREATE TABLE CloneStudents AS SELECT *FROM Students;
To modify the data before passing it to the new table, you can use any of the other features of a SELECT statement. The columns of the new table will be created in reference to the selected rows.
CREATE TABLE ModifiedStudents AS
SELECT Id, CONTACT (FName, " ",Lname) AS
FullName FROM Students WHERE Id>10;
A basic Students table, containing an ID, and the student’s first and last name along with their student number can be created using:
CREATE TABLE Students (
Id int identity (1,1) primary key not null,
FName varchar(20) not null;
LName varchar(20) not null;
StudentNumber varchar(10) not null
This example is specific to Transact-SQL
CREATE TABLE command is used to create a new table in the database, followed by the table name, Students.
This is then followed by the list of column names and their properties, such as the ID
Id: the name of the column
Int: is the type of data.
identity(1,1): the column is going to have auto generated values starting at 1 and increases by one for each new row.
Primary key: means that all values in this column are going to have different values
not null: means that column will not have null values
