Using the Attributes of an Identified Object to CREATE a New Object Based on the Answer Set (Save Data As Table)

A program is disclosed that allows the user to create a table without ever knowing or specifying the attributes of the table and without typing all the records.

After a table is created by using SQL CREATE statement which defining the table attributes and SQL INSERT statements which generating the table records, the user may run a SQL SELECT statement to create a report with default form (raw data). The raw data depending on the SQL SELECT statement could be either a subset or a super set of some original tables. The user may create another table by using the raw data. Since both table attributes and table records are generated from the original table, the user does not have to run the SQL CREATE statement and SQL INSERT statements as the first table was created. Saving data as table provides a fast way to create table from some existing tables.
