Hi,

I have a partitioned table (RANGE-HASH) and now I want to change the partition type to RANGE-LIST. I have seen that I can convert a table non partitioned to partitioned with DBMS_REDEFINITION or EXCHANGE/SPLIT but can I change the partition type online?.

If the answer is not I can think of only create an empty table partitioned and INSERT /*+ APPEND */ INTO ... SELECT * ...


Thanks

Yes, you can do it online using DBMS_REDEFINITION.

Hi Michel,

Do you have a link with some example?.

I have trying to do it following the example with a normal table. I have created the destination table with the new partition type and following all the steps but the result is the same partition type table. I don't know where I was wrong.

Thanks

I don't know waht you did but it seems impossible.
At the end all the data are in the new table you created so it can't be with another kind of partitioning than the one you created.

If you post (copy and paste) what you did maybe we can see what is wrong.

Michel

In this probe I want to convert a RANGE-LIST to RANGE.

Original table


CREATE TABLE IMPRESSION
(
  CMPGN_ID           NUMBER(7),
....
  RANGO_MES          VARCHAR2(19 BYTE)
)
TABLESPACE USERS
PCTUSED    0
PCTFREE    10
INITRANS   1
MAXTRANS   255
PARTITION BY RANGE (CMPGN_ID) 
SUBPARTITION BY LIST (RANGO_MES)
(  
  PARTITION P20703 VALUES LESS THAN (20704)
    NOLOGGING
    NOCOMPRESS
    TABLESPACE USERS
    PCTFREE    10
    INITRANS   1
    MAXTRANS   255
    STORAGE    (
                BUFFER_POOL      DEFAULT
               )
  ( SUBPARTITION "P20703-00001-00030" VALUES ('P20703-00001-00030')    TABLESPACE USERS,
    SUBPARTITION "P20703-06819-06848" VALUES ('P20703-06819-06848')    TABLESPACE DATOS,
    SUBPARTITION "P20703-06849-06879" VALUES ('P20703-06849-06879')    TABLESPACE DATOS,
    SUBPARTITION "P20703-06788-06818" VALUES ('P20703-06788-06818')    TABLESPACE USERS,
    SUBPARTITION "P20703-00031-00061" VALUES ('P20703-00031-00061')    TABLESPACE MIGRACION )
)
NOCOMPRESS 
NOCACHE
NOPARALLEL
MONITORING;





Destination table


CREATE TABLE IMPRESSION2
(
  CMPGN_ID           NUMBER(7),
...
  RANGO_MES          VARCHAR2(19 BYTE)
)
TABLESPACE USERS
PCTUSED    0
PCTFREE    10
INITRANS   1
MAXTRANS   255
PARTITION BY RANGE (CMPGN_ID) 
(  
  PARTITION P20703 VALUES LESS THAN (20704)
    NOLOGGING
    NOCOMPRESS
    TABLESPACE USERS
    PCTFREE    10
    INITRANS   1
    MAXTRANS   255
    STORAGE    (
                BUFFER_POOL      DEFAULT
               )
)
NOCOMPRESS 
NOCACHE
NOPARALLEL
MONITORING;




Process


EXEC DBMS_REDEFINITION.START_REDEF_TABLE(UNAME=>'PRUEBA', orig_table=>'IMPRESSION', int_table=>'IMPRESSION2');


EXEC DBMS_REDEFINITION.SYNC_INTERIM_TABLE(UNAME=>'PRUEBA', orig_table=>'IMPRESSION', int_table=>'IMPRESSION2');


EXEC DBMS_REDEFINITION.FINISH_REDEF_TABLE(UNAME=>'PRUEBA', orig_table=>'IMPRESSION', int_table=>'IMPRESSION2');

First step should be a call to "dbms_redefinition.can_redef_table".
Then you have to copy and paste the execution of what you did.

Hi Michel,

I don't know what I did wrong in my first test but in the second it worked.

Thanks.
