If the column attributes defined for a new table differ from those of the columns whose data is being inserted using INSERT, then the data takes on the attributes of the new table.

The source column names can differ from the destination column names in the new table, but the data is inserted correctly as long as the SELECT request lists the source column names in the same order as the corresponding destination columns in the CREATE TABLE request. This is true even if the new table has a column that is to contain data derived (either arithmetically or by aggregate operation) from the column data in the existing table.
