    Increasing Maxsize of a Datafile

    Hi all,

    Can you increase the maxsize of a datafile? If so how? One of our datafiles is reaching the the maxsize limit. The other option is adding another datafile to the tablespace.

    Thanks all,
    Chucks

    Beware of OS limits on filesize.... I have seen Windows truncate and destroy a datafile that pushed over the 4gig limit. I had to remove the tablespace and rebuild it.
