The resulting table will be empty, and can be inserted into with the /insert endpoint.

  • If a table already exists with the same name, the request will fail.
  • Column names in the table can’t start with a special character or a digit.
  • Each successful table creation consumes 100 credits.
  • To delete a table, you can go to user settings (dune.com) -> data -> delete or use the /delete endpoint.
