## Finding obs in one table and output in another table

Thqs art it worked and i want to keep directly table 3 only and changed the logi in the join as done liket this i am getting the warning

proc sql nowarn;
create table table3 as
select a.stdate, a.enddate, a.comm_cou
from table1 as a
right join table3 as b
on a.stdate=b.enddate and
a.comm_cou=b.comm_cou
;
quit;

WARNING: This CREATE TABLE statement recursively references the target table. A consequence of this
is a possible data integrity   problem.

How can i supress the warning tryed to keep nowarn but not working
