HI Experts,

                   I am trying to create a table which will contain the columns from multiple different tables.

           The query I am using is below, On executing it, I am getting the error 00922. Where am I making the mistake?
create table SUMMARY 8 tablespace vsland_dat_128m AS ( SELECT AGENT_META_DATA."agent_id", SELECT SLOT_META_DATA."slot_id",
SELECT AGENT_META_DATA."instance_id", SELECT TXN_MEASUREMENT."datetime",
SELECT TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_msec", SELECT TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_user_msec",
SELECT TXN_PAGE_STATUS."content_errors", SELECT PROFILE_META_DATA."profile_id"
FROM
AGENT_META_DATA, SLOT_META_DATA, TXN_MEASUREMENT, TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE, TXN_PAGE_STATUS,
PROFILE_META_DATA
)

your should be like the one below. But your select query returns the cross product of all the tables. If this is that you want then no problem, but if you want some join conditions than you should add them to your select query.

CREATE TABLE vsland_dat_128m AS  
SELECT AGENT_META_DATA."agent_id", SLOT_META_DATA."slot_id",
	AGENT_META_DATA."instance_id", TXN_MEASUREMENT."datetime",
	TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_msec", TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_user_msec",
	TXN_PAGE_STATUS."content_errors",PROFILE_META_DATA."profile_id"
FROM
	AGENT_META_DATA, SLOT_META_DATA, TXN_MEASUREMENT, TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE, TXN_PAGE_STATUS,
	PROFILE_META_DATA

Hi Tigin,

                  Thanks for quick response. I tried your solution and still getting the same error.

CREATE TABLE SUMMARY vsland_dat_128m AS  
SELECT AGENT_META_DATA."agent_id", SLOT_META_DATA."slot_id",
        AGENT_META_DATA."instance_id", TXN_MEASUREMENT."datetime",
        TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_msec", TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_user_msec",
        TXN_PAGE_STATUS."content_errors",PROFILE_META_DATA."profile_id"
FROM
        AGENT_META_DATA, SLOT_META_DATA, TXN_MEASUREMENT, TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE, TXN_PAGE_STATUS,

before creating the table be sure that the select statement returns the correct data set that you want. After then add the create table as part to your statement. Since I dont have your table scripts I write the code over the head. Check the select part first.

Hi tigin,


             This is the select query which is working perfectly fine. but as soon as I add, create table summary as in the beginning, it starts giving errors


(select AGENT_META_DATA."agent_id", SLOT_META_DATA."slot_id", AGENT_META_DATA."instance_id",
trim(TXN_MEASUREMENT."datetime") , TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_msec", TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_user_msec",
TXN_PAGE_STATUS."content_errors", PROFILE_META_DATA."profile_id"
from AGENT_META_DATA, SLOT_META_DATA, TXN_MEASUREMENT, TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE, 
TXN_PAGE_STATUS, PROFILE_META_DATA)

your syntax should  be like the one attached without paranthesis
create table summary as
select AGENT_META_DATA."agent_id", SLOT_META_DATA."slot_id", AGENT_META_DATA."instance_id",
trim(TXN_MEASUREMENT."datetime") , TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_msec", TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE."delta_user_msec",
TXN_PAGE_STATUS."content_errors", PROFILE_META_DATA."profile_id"
from AGENT_META_DATA, SLOT_META_DATA, TXN_MEASUREMENT, TXN_PAGE_PERFORMANCE, 
TXN_PAGE_STATUS, PROFILE_META_DATA
