Adding a table using SQL*Plus

How do I add a table to an Oracle database using SQL*Plus?

The Oracle SQL Reference Guide can help you out quite a bit. In SQL*Plus, you will just use a SQL statement to create the table. Once you have signed on to SQL*Plus, you can issue a command similar to the following:


CREATE TABLE my_new_table (
   column1   NUMBER,
   my_column VARCHAR2(30),
   your_col  CHAR(12));
The above command just shows some of the basics. There are a lot more options as the documentation will show you. You can also use Oracle's Enterprise Manager for a GUI tool that can help you create tables.
