    partitioning

    hello
    i have a table with thousands of records , now i want to go for partition .i have to do without using logical backup that is create a new table and taking a backup of the records query wise and than dump it to the new table which is partitioned.
    one of my colleage is not sure of the syntax but he said to use exchange to copy the records to the new table which is partitioned.
    could you please help me with the correct syntax or help me out with a solution
    thank you

    You could use CREAT TABLE ... AS SELECT ... or you could export the data and create the new partitioned object then import.

    The CREATE TABLE ... AS SELECT with create the new table structure and copy the records.

    eg

    if you have a table TEST and you want to create a partition table TEST2 with the values from TEST you could do something similar to the following:

    Code:
     create table TEST2
     partition by range (id)
       (partition range1 values less than (5),
       partition range2 values less than (50))
     as select * from TEST

    is thousend of records enough to decide for partitioning???
    remember not to forget the overhead of partitioning.

    Oracle recommends this feature as must for table with > 2GB!
