    I have dropped a datafile by,

    -- deleting the file physically.
    -- alter database datafile 'e:\...\...\x.prd' offline drop.

    now the database is working fine but v$datafile still lists the datafile.

    how can i get this cleared.

    Wink dropping data file

    You need to drop the tablespace associated with the datafile and then physically remove the file.

    on next shutdown & start your datafile will bee tracered as missing (you can not remove from there "dba_data_files" - until you don't make drop and create tablespace)

    Talking whoops


    Yeah, the order is important.

    What I do:
    1. Drop TableSpace
    2. Delete Datafile from Server
    3. Remove the user associated with that tablespace (normally I have 1 user/connection per Schema/Tablespace, may not be best thing to do tho)
