The Alter Table never crossed my mind. That will work also.
I hoped to do it in the create table to eliminate the second script.
I will use the Alter Table.

Subject: SQL Create Table AS with primary key

I have an SQL statement like this, I want to add a key to the table



Select t1.ColA, t1.ColB, t1.ColC, t2.ColA, t1.ColD

from myLib.Table1 t1

join myLib.Table2 t2

on t1.ColA = t2.ColA and t1.ColB = t2.ColB

where t1.ColA = 208

and t1.ColR = 'Y'

and t1.ColB in


Select t1b.ColB

from myLib.Table1 t1b

where t1b.ColA = 208

and t1b.ColR != 'Y'

and t1b.ColM = 2023



with data

I want to add a key to the result table myLib.ResultTbl.

I have tried adding 'primary key (t1.ColA, t1.ColB)' but not working.

Is my only option to follow this create with a create index?
