Create a Table From a SQL Statement

You can create a copy of a table using the SELECT INTO command.

SELECT * INTO TABLE2 FROM TABLE1

You can also join two or more tables and create a new table from the joined tables.

SELECT * INTO TABLE3 FROM TABLE1 a LEFT OUTER JOIN TABLE2 b ON a.field1 = b.field5

The newly created table will not have a primary key even if the existing table or tables do have a primary key.
