Copying Statistics From a Base to a Target Table
Use the optional AND STATISTICS clause with the CREATE TABLE AS…WITH DATA statement to copy statistics from a base table to a target table. Using the AND STATISTICS clause saves time from having to collect statistics on the new table.
Note: You can use the shorthand STATS or STAT in place of STATISTICS.
If you choose not to copy statistics, you can either omit the AND STATISTICS clause or you can specify the AND NO STATISTICS clause. If you wish to copy the table using zeroed statistics, submit the WITH NO DATA AND STATISTICS option instead.
