    Drop Partition Problems

    I have a problem dropping a partition. The partition is on a bad tablespace. The tablespace is missing a file. I just want to drop the tablespace (it has not data). I have to drop the partition first but it telling me I can't because I have a bad tablespace.

    Move Partition

    Is there a way to force a move partition?

    I am getting an error trying to move the partition to another tablespace.

    Once I do that I probably would be able to drop the tablespace.

    Exchange Partition

    I was able to solve my problem with Exchange Partition.

    I created a temp table with the data I needed in a new tablespace.

    Ran and exchange partition

    Dropped the temp table

    Dropped the bad tablespace
