Go Up to Working with Tables

Before creating a table, you should:

  • Design, normalize, create, and connect to a database
  • Determine what tables, columns, and column definitions to create
  • Create the domain definitions in the database
  • Declare the table if an embedded SQL application both creates a table and populates the table with data in the same program

For information on how to create, drop, and modify domains, see Working with Domains. The DECLARE TABLE statement must precede CREATE TABLE. For the syntax of DECLARE TABLE, see the Language Reference.
