Subj:   Re: Difference in table creation.
From:   Dave Wellman


What sort of differences are you thinking of?

The "create table as" syntax allows you to

- clone an existing table

- create a table based on the results of a SELECT

- populate the table with data

- copy existing stats from the source table (I think only if you clone a table)

The "create table as" syntax does not allow you to add RI constraints.
