Works for me, without errors:

test=# create table tab1(i int);
CREATE TABLE
Zeit: 0,850 ms
test=*# CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION test2(tab1 text, tab2 text )
  RETURNS text AS
  $$
  BEGIN
  EXECUTE 'create table ' || quote_ident(tab2) || ' as Select *  from ' || quote_ident(tab1);
    RETURN 'done';
  END; $$
  LANGUAGE 'plpgsql' VOLATILE;
CREATE FUNCTION
Zeit: 0,472 ms
test=*# select * from test2('tab1','tab2');
 test2
-------
 done
(1 Zeile)

Zeit: 1,844 ms


Please show the error you got.
