SQL Server Express create table

Hello Expert,

Needed a database to do some joins on lists of servers.
Downloaded MS SQL Server Express 2012.

Got my join statement to work.

Thought I could just put 'Create table' in front of it to turn the
query into a table but I get

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 3
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'select'.

So I pulled out the word 'select'
and I get

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Incorrect syntax near 'Change_short$'.

I could have sworn I have done this before.
but it looks like they have changed the syntax.
Like whats up with all the dollar signs?
And how do i create tables and views?

Thanks.

Before the from-clause, use an into-clause:
select ...
into <table name>
from ...
where ...
