PHP MSSQL - How To Create a New Table?

If you want to create a table in the SQL Server database, you can run the CREATE TABLE SQL statement using the mssql_query() function, as shown in the following sample script:

  $con = mssql_connect('LOCALHOST','sa','FYIcenter');
  mssql_select_db('FyiCenterData', $con);

  # creating a new table
  $sql = "CREATE TABLE fyi_links ("
      . " id INT NOT NULL" 
      . ", url VARCHAR(80) NOT NULL"
      . ", notes VARCHAR(1024)"
      . ", counts INT"
      . ", time DATETIME"
      . ")";
  $res = mssql_query($sql,$con);
  if (!$res) {
    print("Table creation failed with error:\n");
    print("   ".mssql_get_last_message()."\n");
  } else {
    print("Table fyi_links created.\n");
