From reading what ORA-14287 means, I guess Oracle has just decided its not allowed (probably some complex internal reasons?)

ORA-14287: cannot REBUILD a partition of a Composite Range partitioned index
Cause: User attempted to rebuild a partition of a Composite Range partitioned index which is illegal
Action: REBUILD the index partition, a subpartition at a time Received on Thu Jun 05 2008 - 11:14:51 CDT
