When you say "temp table" do you mean a temporary, i.e. # table, or a temporary copy of a permanent table?
The simplest way to do either is with SELECT INTO. Note that SELECT INTO is not really suitable for production use due to issues with locking and logging (lack thereof).
SELECT * INTO my_new_table FROM my_old_table
You have to be SA or DBO to do the above. Note that it won't copy constraints, indexes, etc. If you only want a temporary table (lasts as long as your session) do the following:
SELECT * INTO #my_temp_table FROM my_old_table
doubt in sybase
WL or WS?
