    a simple problem Creating a table

    Hello #1 noob here. I thought I know I'll purchase myself a book. Being the modern world it was an ebook. A sitepoint one no less.

    "Building your own database driven websites using php and mySQL"

    I started. I started well. I came across this:

    mysql> CREATE TABLE table_name (
    -> column1Name column1Type column1Details,
    -> column2Name column2Type column2Details,
    -> ⋮
    -> ) DEFAULT CHARACTER SET charset;

    I stopped. I stopped dead.

    This has got to be something simple right? I suggest one of you know's the answer.

    I think it's that little 3 dot thing. This has caught my intrigue. What's it called? How did it become to be created? What does it mean? How can I get my keyboard to make one? Why would I want to?

    Anyway, if anyone can help me I'd be utterly grateful and able to continue onwards to supremacy.

    Many thanks for your time, you're all wonderful human beings.

    lol I think he thought it was two different posters. I generally post in a lighthearted way, and at this stage mocked myself.

    English humour perhaps mistranslated across the water
