i'm not sure if i understand your situation correctly. You have a table in oracle 8 that has a default value on one of the columns, and the same table without the default value in oracle 11? Or do both tables have a default value on that column?

select table_name, column_name , data_default from user_tab_columns where table_name = 'YOURTABLE' ;

should return any default value's on columns. To put a default value on a column, you have to use the

and the rest you should know or find in the docs ;)
