Hi,

Have a look at the following result about the TEMP tablespace.
When I try to resize the datafiles under the TEMP table then it is showing me error like

ORA-03297: file contains used data beyond requested RESIZE value


SQL> select sum(bytes)/1024/1024 from dba_data_files
  2  where tablespace_name='TEMP'
  3  /

SUM(BYTES)/1024/1024
--------------------
               25148

SQL> select sum(bytes)/1024/1024 from dba_segments
  2  where tablespace_name='TEMP'
  3  /

SUM(BYTES)/1024/1024
--------------------
                6360

SQL> select round(sum(user_bytes)/1024/1024) from dba_data_files
  2  where tablespace_name='TEMP'
  3  /

ROUND(SUM(USER_BYTES)/1024/1024)
--------------------------------
                           25148



Please let me know how to resize this datafile?

Thanks

And also please have a look the following for the free space in this tablespace

SQL> select round(sum(bytes)/1024/1024) from dba_free_space
  2  where tablespace_name='TEMP'
  3  /

ROUND(SUM(BYTES)/1024/1024)
---------------------------
                      18788


Thanks.

If TEMP tablespace is a temporary tablespace, you must create it with "CREATE TEMPORARY TABLESPACE" command and not "CREATE TABLESPACE" one.

You must create a new real temporary tablespace and drop this one (after switching all users temporary tablespace with ALTER USER).

To answer your question, you can't resize a datafile below the last allocated extent that you can see in dba_extents.
But the correct way, in your case, is to create a new and real temporary tablespace.

Regards
Michel
