The best help for newbies and experts alike is Books Online (BOL) that comes with your SQL Server installation. You can find the syntax for ‘Create table’ in this BOL.
Also, play around with the sample databases ‘Pubs’ and ‘Northwind’ that comes along with your SQL server installation. Studying the structure of these sample databases gives you a good idea about how should you build your own database.
Nelson: 1) You can find a lot information in main section (Books, Article, etc.)
2) After Database you can create a tables. In your case, Enterprise Manager is good tool.
You can design your tables and index, etc.
3) On line book is available with your SQL Server. I suggest you, read documentation first like 1) or 3) Do not worry about any question you have, all of us begin like you. Regards, Luis Martin

Use Query Analizer: Write the following: USE yourdatabase CREATE TABLE TEST (
[CODITM] [char] 18 NULL,
[CODEMP] [smallint] NULL,
Now you have one table with diferents data type. The above is easy or not to you? Luis Martin

Hi Nelson, from BOL: ‘Signals the end of a batch of Transact-SQL statements to the Microsoft® SQL Serverâ„¢ utilities’ May I recommend BOL as THE premier source of information. Cheers,
True, also refer to this for tutorials which will lend you information required. _________
