Altering a Table Partition
I 've created a Table with out partitioning concept,
If I want to alter that table using the range/list partition.., how can I ?
can u please explain with syntax for this?
Thanks in Advance
There is not single command to convert a non-partitioned table into a partitioned one.
1- Rename your_table as your_nonpart_table, drop indexes and constraints
2- Create your_table as partitioned
3- Populate your_table from your_nonpart_table
4- Build indexes and constraints as needed.
5- Gather fresh stats on your_table
