MySQL - Create Table

The CREATE TABLE statement is used to create a new table in MYSQL database.

MYSQL Syntax :
CREATE TABLE table_name (
    column1 data_type NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    column2 data_type,
    column3 data_type,
   ............................,
PRIMARY KEY (column1)
);

The column parameters is the names of the columns of the table.
data_type will be varchar, integer, date, text, Enum, Float, Double  etc.
AUTO_INCREMENT will increment value by +1.
PRIMARY KEY can be unique and can not be NULL;

MYSQL Example :
CREATE TABLE tblstudent (
stud_id INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
stud_name VARCHAR(70) NOT NULL ,
stud_mobile VARCHAR(11) NOT NULL ,
stud_address TEXT NOT NULL ,
Stud_birthdate DATE NOT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY (stud_id)
) ENGINE = MyISAM;  

Explain :
