Hi ,
I am having Oracle 9i relaese 2 on my db server. I am getting the following error every time I try to create a bitmap index:-
ORA-00439: feature not enabled: Bit-mapped indexes

I have queried the v$option table .Here the value of parameter Bit-mapped indexes is FALSE.

The result of v$version is :-
Oracle9i Release 9.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production
PL/SQL Release 9.2.0.1.0 - Production
CORE 9.2.0.1.0 Production
TNS for Solaris: Version 9.2.0.1.0 - Production
NLSRTL Version 9.2.0.1.0 - Production

Actually when we created the database our installation was halted . so we manually created the database using Create database commnad.

How can we enable the BITMAP Index Feature now.
Pls help.

Hi,

Are you using Oracle Standard Edition? Bit-mapped indexes are only available with Enterprise Edition or Personal Edition.

Best regards.

You need Enterprise or Personal edition to create Bitmap Indexes, as Frank said. You can upgrade from Standard to Enterprise by export/import . Precreate the database using Enterprise edition,export from Standard and import into Enterprise.

Oracle Expression (OE) Edition is the cheapest edition compared to Standard, Enterprise & Personal. OE will not have enough Oracle APIs itself, for instance WM_CONCAT is one of Oracle API function which is not available as part of OE edition. Better not use if you need more capabilities.

"OE"? Where did that abbreviation come from? Oracle Express Edition was always known as "XE", not "OE".

Never heard about it or do you mean Oracle Express Edition (XE) which we already talked about 3 years ago.

You should not use anyway as this is an undocumented function for Oracle use only.

My mistake...I should not have referred Oracle Express Edition as OE.
