John,

You SELECT INTO a table rather than a database. Think about it, the natural result of a SELECT is a cursor (read "temporary table") and therefore the structure is that of a table. You can of course add the DATABASE clause as a modifier:

SELECT ... INTO TABLE MyTable DATABASE MyDatabase NAME MyLongTableName
