CREATE TABLE EMPL_DEMO AS SELECT * FROM employees WHERE 1=2;

I have seen this statement someplace on the internet but I couldn't understand the WHERE 1=2.

Can anyone please, explain this?

This type of command is normally used to copy the structure of one table to the another. In this case, EMPL_DEMO will be having the same column structure of employees, except for the keys or constraints.

The 1=2 always evaluates to False which stops you from copying any of the rows.
