    Size of row

    Hi all,

    We have a case of chained rows in one of our tables. I have the head_rowid of the offending row from the chained_row table. How do i go about finding the actual size of the row and then copying that particular row into a temporary dummy table?

    Thanks in advance,
    Chucks_k

    Question

    All that just for ONE row?

    Thanks.

    How about copying the offending row into a new table, analyzing the table, and reading avg_row_len from user_tables?
