Create Table From Another Table in Sql Server Or Copy Table Structure

Create Table From Another Table: In some situations we need to create table from another table for many reasons like we are going to make some changes in the table and we want to keep the schema or just want a look a like table where we can put some data as backup later on or any other reasons.

Create Table from another Table With Data

Obviously to copy a table`s structure you should have a existing table so let`s create a table and put some data.

Table BaseTable (Id Int , Name Varchar(50), CreatedOn Datetime )

Insert into BaseTable Values (1 , 'Neeraj Prasad Sharma' , GETDATE())

Insert into BaseTable Values (2 , 'Vikas Kumar' , GETDATE())

Insert into BaseTable Values (2 , 'Mark Wizz' , GETDATE())

  • Please note: GetDate() Function returns current date with time.

Now we have a table with some data now copy columns from base table using INTO

* INTO CopyTable From BaseTable where 1=2

  • Please note the where condition we just pass a false statement, can pass any false statement here like 'a'='b' or '2=0 etc.
