ORA-14004: missing PARTITION keyword


Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Question on error "ORA-14004: missing PARTITION keyword":

I have a question concerning ORA-14004: missing PARTITION keyword. Here's what I'm doing:

alter table xx move tablespace yy

but when I tested this solution I found that oracle 8.0.6 doesn't support this DML request (alter .... move ......)

and this error message is being thrown in Oracle 8.0.6

SQL> alter table sami move tablespace
alter table sami move tablespace use
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-14004: missing PARTITION keyword

 

Answer by Edward Stoever:

If this table is partitioned then you will have to move each partition individually ...

alter table my_table move partition my_partition tablespace my_ts
/

As far as I know, Oracle 8 does not support the "alter table tablename move" command.

You can either export the table and indexes, then drop it, then import it or upgrade the database.

Assuming you choose to export/import.... be sure to do this on a test database a few times before trying it in production. You want to make sure the indexes, triggers and constraints get rebuilt. There may be an impact on other objects that depend on the table in question. It is your responsibility to do the job properly, and that includes testing it out enough times so that you are comfortable with the results.
