Umm, not quite what I meant... I don't know what's any particular LOB entry/segment.

An entry in a LOB column is a link to a LOB segment if the LOB is larger than a certain size (4000 bytes I think), but if you archived/ exported/deleted that table would it also archive/export/delete the LOB segments?

My guess is that it would, but that's why I'm asking. I need to be certain. Received on Wed Oct 15 2008 - 15:51:33 CDT
