Oracle Temporary Table question

Is this how you create an Oracle Temporary table?  If not can you tell me how?

create global temporary table SHIP_INFO_TEMP
on commit preserve rows as
with myXML as (
select test_id||'-'||ship_seq_nbr as scnro_id, TRKNG_NBR,  
xmlcol from IAT.ship_info
where isvalid(baseline) = 1)
select scnro_id, TRKNG_NBR, TRKNG_NBR,
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//MNBR') "MN",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//P1') "P1",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//RECPCNTRYCD') "Dest",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//RECPNM') "Recipient_Name",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//SNDRCNTRYCD') "Origin",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//SHIPPING_DEVICE') "Software",
extractvalue(xmlcol,'//SVCTYPCD') "Service"
from myXML;

normally I don't create a temporary table with the CTAS syntax

you have a syntax error in that you are selecting TRKNG_NBR  twice, but other than that it should be valid.

you'd only do that once though.  If you needed to fill the temp table a second time, you'd just do an insert.

Oracle temp tables aren't like sql server where you create and drop them repeatedly.  in Oracle you create them once and then simply reuse them, almost like a normal table, except the data is in TEMP and is only visible to your own session and goes away at the end of your session
