    max extents reached

    I am receiving the following message ORA-01631 . I have increased the max extents to unlimited and performed percentage increases on the tablespace. I am trying to import data into a particular table not from a Oracle dump file but from another database. Is there anything I can check or modify further in Oracle as I am still receiving the max extents reached message when data is imported.

    ORA-01631 max # extents (string) reached in table string.string

    Cause: A table tried to extend past MAXEXTENTS.

    Action: If MAXEXTENTS is less than the system maximum, raise it. Otherwise, you must re-create with larger initial, next or PCTINCREASE parameters.

    Are you sure this is not for the table index?
    I have seen that before.
    I would not touch the pct_increase for the table, IMO, you are asking for trouble.

    You might also check to see if there is an insert trigger that is also inserting data into another table.

    Appearantly it's not obvious, I meant set maxextents to unlimited for ALL OBJECTS.

    Setting MAXEXTENTS to unlimited on the tablespace level has absolutely no effect on the existing segments (as well on the future segments that will have MAXEXTENTS specified sxplicitely). You'll have to set MAXEXTENTS on the table you are inserting to.

    SQL> SET HEADING OFF
    SQL> SET PAGESIZE 1000
    SQL> SPOOL MAX_EXTENTS_UNLIMITED.SQL

    SQL> select 'alter table '||owner||'.'||table_name||' storage(maxextents unlimited);'
    2 from dba_tables
    3 where owner='TABLE_OWNER_YOU_WANT_TO_ALTER;

    SQL> SPOOL OFF
