script-move a list of indexes - particular set of tables in a tablespace
the script that I have given below gives me a list of indexes that are there for the corresponding tables in the tablespace P1ECP1_LT96K_D. Now having got the list of indexes I would like to move the indexes to another tablespace. Can anyone modify this script so that I will be getting the script for moving the indexes to a seperate tablespace as well.
'select index_name from dba_indexes where table_name=''' ||table_name|| ''';'
from dba_tables where tablespace_name='P1ECP1_LT96K_D' and owner='DIP_S01' ;
Re: script-move a list of indexes - particular set of tables in a tablespace
H'mmm. I suspect you didn't try hard to solve this yourself, but anyway ...
'Alter index '||owner||'.'||index_name||' rebuild tablespace my_tablespace;'
tablespace_name = 'P1ECP1_LT96K_D' and
owner = 'DIP_S01'
I was just breaking my head in the next step (after what I had posted) but just got stuck on that. Your reply is helpfull to a great extent in solving the problem.
Could you point out the mistake/edit what I have given below if I have proceeded in the correct way:
'alter index' ||index_name|| 'move tablespace P1ECP1_LT96K_X ;'
from dba_indexes where table_name='''||table_name||''';'
from dba_indexes where tablespace_name='P1ECP1_LT96K_D'
Thanks and Regards,

Most likely you are getting your single quote occurances incorrect. ie. to place a literal single quote in a string you have to ...
... and to nest another level inside that you have to ..
This is really because you are writing a SQL to generate a series of SQL's that then generate another series of SQL's -- the example i gave just "jumps" straight down to the lowest level in one go.
You can't MOVE indexes to another tablespace. You have to REBUILD indexes to move them!
'ALTER INDEX ' || index_name || ' REBUILD TABLESPACE P1ECP1_LT96K_X;'
FROM dba_indexes WHERE tablespace_name='P1ECP1_LT96K_D';
