The most compact means of copying a table is to:

  1. Initially, create a new table using the "CREATE TABLE" statement
  2. And you have to use "INSERT" based on the "SELECT" from the old table:
INSERT INTO new_table
SELECT * FROM old_table

In the SQL Server, You need to use the "INTO" syntax:

    INTO new_table
  FROM old_table

Because in the SQL Server, the "INTO" clause creates a table that doesn't already present.
