SQL - CREATE Table

SQL - CREATE Table

Creating a basic table involves naming the table and defining its columns and each column's data type.
The SQL CREATE TABLE statement is used to create a new table.

Syntax

CREATE TABLE table_name(
   column1 datatype,
   column2 datatype,
   .....
   columnN datatype,
   PRIMARY KEY( one or more columns )
);
CREATE TABLE is the keyword telling the database system what you want to do. In this case, you want to create a new table. The unique name or identifier for the table follows the CREATE TABLE statement.
Then in brackets comes the list defining each column in the table and what sort of data type it is. The syntax becomes clearer with an example below.
A copy of an existing table can be created using a combination of the CREATE TABLE statement and the SELECT statement.
