    ALTER TABLE my_table STORAGE(MAXEXTENTS UNLIMITED);

    This will let you go out to about 2.4 Billion extents, so that should take care of the immediate problem. Now all you have to do is make sure you can handle all drive space required!

    You have 2 choices then if you're on 7.2

    1) If the table is not currently on it's max_extents limit, then make the next_extent size big enough to keep you going until you can action 2).

    2) Export the table, Disable constraints, truncate the table, change the next extent size to something more appropriate, import the table.

    of course, there is an option 3) too... Upgrade to 7.3.4 or higher.

    cannot export more than 20 gig

    You cannot export a table which has grown in size from more than 20 gigs

    Sorry - misread your post - I thought the 24Gb referred to Database size.

    I didn't realise there was a limit to the maximum size of a table on export. I've searched Metalinkm, but come up with nothing - Sorry.

    Do you have the disk space to do a Create table .... as Select * from .......: ?
    If so then create the copy, drop the original and rename copy.
