Do it in two statements. The first selects the names from
namelist, then you string them together 'name1','name2','name3'
inside a variable. Then you create the table using the contents
of that variable.
It's kind of ugly. If your ENUM/SET values are already stored in
another table, then...maybe you shouldn't be using ENUM/SET? But
