datasource = 'MS SQL Server Auth';
conn = database(datasource,'','');

Use the SQL CREATE statement to create the table Person.

sqlquery = ['CREATE TABLE Person(LastName varchar, ' ...
    'FirstName varchar,Address varchar,Age int)'];

Create the table in the database using the database connection.

execute(conn,sqlquery)
