You can use SELECT INTO. Here's an example:

SELECT *
INTO NewTableName
FROM TableOrViewName
...

Thanks for your replies.

so I have to create a table first then insert the rows instead of create a table from a view directly? like

create table a
from
(select *
from view)

If you create the table first, use INSERT INTO...SELECT, rather than SELECT...INTO :

CREATE TABLE a(columns...)

INSERT INTO a
SELECT *
FROM TableOrViewName

SELECT...INTO will create the table on the fly, as long as it doesn't already exist.
