For example, TO_DATE('9999-12-01', 'YYYY-MM-DD') causes the high bound to be 10000-01-01, which would not be storable if 10000 is out of the legal range. Out-of-line (OOL) table partitioning is supported. The compression attribute for the table and all other partitions is inherited from the tablespace level. This time, however, you specify PARTITION BY LIST to define the partitioning strategy. Specifically, all partitions of the following entities must reside in tablespaces of the same block size: Primary key index segments of index-organized tables, Overflow segments of index-organized tables. By choosing the partitioning key to be a subset of the primary key, an insert operation must only verify uniqueness of the primary key in a single partition, thereby maintaining partition independence. The names of the subpartitions, unless you use interval-* subpartitioning, are generated by concatenating the partition name with the subpartition name in the form: For interval-* subpartitioning, the subpartition names are system-generated in the form: The following query displays the subpartition names and tablespaces: The following example, for a range-list partitioned table, illustrates how using a subpartition template can help you stripe data across tablespaces. Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference, "Using Subpartition Templates to Describe Composite Partitioned Tables", "Creating Composite Range-Hash Partitioned Tables", "Creating Composite Range-List Partitioned Tables", "Creating Composite Range-Range Partitioned Tables", Table 4-1, "ALTER TABLE Maintenance Operations for Table Partitions". This example uses the example tablespace, which is part of the sample schemas in your seed database. The analytical functions are performed within this partitions. Finally, the DENSE_RANK () function applied to the rows in each partition. Oracle Database SecureFiles and Large Objects Developer's Guide, Oracle Database Object-Relational Developer's Guide. This question is . Composite partitioning (introduced in Oracle 8i) 4. However, you cannot create two tables of the same XML schema that has out-of-line tables. Setting the initialization parameter DEFERRED_SEGMENT_CREATION to TRUE or FALSE with the ALTER SESSION or ALTER SYSTEM SQL statements. The subpartition name is system generated in the form SYS_SUBPn. Another new exciting functionality in Oracle Database 12c Release 2 is the introduction of auto-list partitioning. If b1
