Joel,

Regarding 2), you can inherit the field attributes. What you cannot do is
define a new attribute (eg.,length + 2) for your new definition.

You can:

CREATE TABLE NEWTABLE AS
(SELECT COL1 AS COL1_2 FROM DEF_TABLE) DEFINITION ONLY

You can't:

CREATE TABLE NEWTABLE AS
(SELECT COL1 AS COL1_2 char(length + 2) FROM DEF_TABLE) DEFINITION ONLY
