200 amp sub panel

Again, running sub in shop from a main panel which is a 2000 amp in shop.

Instead of running a 100 sub from the main can I use a standard 200 amp panel therfore using all 200 amp sub provided I have the wiring and breakers riight??

I'm not sure I can even read your question right. But I think the answer is yes.

After reading it again I could not understand it either.

From a main, for my sub panel can I use a standard 200 amp panel thereby allowing me to have more breakers in the sub than if I had run a a smaller 100 amp panel.
Wire from main to sun will be #2 gauge about 45ft.

I understand can not use at "one time any more than about 100 amps" in the sub "at one time".
The sub will be on a 100 amp breaker "from" the main panel.

Is this any better??

The rating of the subpanel can be anything that is at or above the size of the breaker protecting the feeder. So the answer is still yes.
