Thanks for the responses. They were good shots at an intractable problem. Intractable because the "trusted" developer lied - although not intentionally. His script had, through some mysterious means, after running for 3 years without fail, been switched to point to test. There is NO reason why that error would come from an insert into a range partition table, regardless of datatype, with a partition bounded by maxvalue. You can't have holes in range partitions you can only be missing values at the "top" or "high" end.

It might help us if you send your create table script.

We're inserting records via SQL*Loader into a

The table is Range Partitioned.

The last partition is defined as Maxvalue.

If you have a maxvalue partition it should not be possible to see

Record 8: Rejected - Error on table LEAVES.

ORA-14400: inserted partition key does not map to any partition

But every record fails.

MaxValue should be just like an "else", right? And the docs say that Nulls go to maxvalue partitions.

Either the value is less than some partition we defined or less than maxvalue but it's not unmappable.

What am I missing?
