Error while Creating table using Select Command

Hi All,

I am new to MS SQL Server.I am using MS SQL 2000.I have a problem in
creating a table by using Select command.I have table called "test"
and i want to create another table with the same structure and rows.I
tried with the following command

create Table test1 as select * from test;

But it give an syntax error.I have tried the same command in Oracle
but i was working.Does MS SQL 2000 Server supports this kind of Query.

Please help me to solve the problem or any other methods to perform
this operation.

Thanks in Advance

You can use Query Analyzer to generate the CREATE TABLE statement
automatically from your exsiting table.

CREATE TABLE test1 (col1 INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, col2...)

INSERT INTO test1 (col1, col2,...)
SELECT col1, col2,...
FROM test

You can also use:

SELECT * INTO test1 FROM test

but the CREATE... INSERT method gives you more control over constraints,
etc.

SELECT * INTO NewTable FROM OldTable

This will create the same structure and take the data with it.

The other option is go to the design of your table, preview a script
of it, and then use this to build the new table (just change the table
name). Once you have the structure of the table, you can create / drop
this as needed within your query (i.e. Create Table ... SELECT
INTO...)

Hello, I want to set up a query in SQL Server that is "grouped by" a variable PRICE. Since PRICE takes on continuous decimal values, I want to create deciles based on this variable and then display the average price in each decile. As background, PRICE is a calculated quantity: I divide a table field SLS_DLRS by a field SLS_UNTS to get it. I also want to include an average SLS_UNTS for each decile. So essentially, I want the result...

I have lots of tables to copy from one server to another. The new tables have been created to match the old ones. I practiced with one table. I created the select command (select * from tableA) and Visual Basic .NET created an update command--very long as there are a lot of fields. Now there are more large tables to copy. Is there an easy way to have Visual Basic create these update commands itself for the other tables with out...
