Does Firebird support creating tables using SELECT statement?
Short answer: No.
If you used some other database system, you might have used a query like this to create a new table with same structure:
CREATE TABLE t2
SELECT * FROM t1;
or something like:
SELECT * FROM t1
Firebird does not support this. You have to create a new table using CREATE TABLE statement. If you wish to get a table using the same columns, it's easiest to open the source table's DDL in your administration tool (In FlameRobin it's the DDL link on the table properties), change the table name and execute.
