Creating a table via SELECT - Why the syntax error?

Creating a table via SELECT - Why the syntax error?

Creating a table via SELECT - Why the syntax error?

(OP)
I am trying to create a new table from an existing table, using SELECT.
My command is:

CREATE TABLE test SELECT * FROM atlmar2000 WHERE RankInClass <= 3;

The error I get is:

ERROR 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'SELECT * FROM atlmar2000 WHERE RankInClass <= 3' at line 1

The SELECT statement by itself works fine.
I have reviewed the MySQL.com documentation, and theoretically this should work.
What is the problem?

RE: Creating a table via SELECT - Why the syntax error?

(OP)
Answer: I am using MySQL 3.22, and this syntax is only supported from version 3.23.
