Would it be possible to create a copy of an Oracle table without actually copying the data? I believe I already know the statement:
create table xyz_new as select * from xyz;
But I think this copies both the structure and the data. I'm just trying to get the structure. Thanks!

Yes.

You just need to add a condition to your query.  Just make sure your condition evaluates to false, so you don’t get any data added to the new table.

For example:

create table xyz_new as select * from xyz where 1=0;
