    Hi

    this query will give the size of the database

    select sum(BYTES)/(1024*1024)||' mb' 'database size' from dba_data_files;

    if u want to c the free space available u have to do it at OS level

    There is a program called dbassist that is a GUI that can help you create your database. How big the database is depends on the size of the data.

    Its GUI based oracle utility

    Just like exp/imp/sql*plus to create/modify/delete a database. Usually it will be in $O_H/bin. Otherwise you can search for it in NT/ Use find command in Unix.

    You need to have x-windows in unix to invoke this utility.

    Usually when installing the Oracle client for administrator dbassist also installs as part of it.
