My second posting is the correct one - I did a reverse copy/paste in the first post, but I removed it immediately. alter table ... move might help indeed, but I wonder why it got so bloated in the first place. This is a table in a locally managed tablespace with automatic extent allocation and ASSM... lots of inserts, but almost no deletes or updates...
