ORA-14019: partition bound element must be one of: string, datetime or interval literal, number, or MAXVALUE

 


Question: 

I get the errors ORA-14019: partition bound element must be one of: string, datetime or interval literal, number, or MAXVALUE and ORA-14019: partition bound element must be one of: string, datetime or interval literal, number, or MAXVALUE

This is the script I used:


CREATE TABLE DEMO2
(
DF1 VARCHAR (1024),
DF2 VARCHAR (1024),
DF3 VARCHAR (1024),
DF4 VARCHAR (1024),
DF5 NUMBER,
TIME DATE,
CONSTRAINT PK_DEMO2 PRIMARY KEY (DF1, DF2, DF3, DF4, DF5)
)
PARTITION BY RANGE (DF5)
(PARTITION DEMO2_1 VALUES LESS THAN (
(to_date('20051031','YYYYMMDD') - (10/24) - to_date('19700101','YYYYMMDD')) * 24*60*60*10000);

 

Answer by rleishman:

According to the doco, the syntax is:

CODE

VALUES LESS THAN
 ({ literal | MAXVALUE }
    [, { literal | MAXVALUE } ]...
 )


Which means what you provided is not quite literal enough (even though it is entirely deterministic).

Once again, according to the doco, a numeric literal is:

CODE

[ + | - ]
{ digit [ digit ]... [ . ] [ digit [ digit ]... ]
| . digit [ digit ]...
}
[ e [ + | - ] digit [ digit ]... ]
[ f | d ]


So the clause you supplied is actually an expression, not a literal.
You will need to perform the calculation before you create the partition. Find out what the number comes out as when you plug a date into the expression, and use that number in the PARTITION clause.
