The DB_files is the amount of database files you are allowed. (*.dbf)

Maybe you could increase the size of the Next_Extent to 4M+ to allow for 121 extents, but bigger.

Maybe the Sql Statment could be looked at as well, to see if it could be modified not to use so much temp space.

When you add new files to a tablespace you increase the number of extents of the tablespaceq as pointed below. So you have to increase MAX_EXTENTS parameter of the TS.

To change this parameter look at the example:

ALTER TABLESPACE app_data
DEFAULT STORAGE (
INITIAL 2M
NEXT 2M
MAXEXTENTS 999 );

Segments
A segment is the space allocated for a specific logical storage structure within a
tablespace. For example, all of the storage allocated to a table is a segment.
• A tablespace may consist of one or more segments.
• A segment cannot span tablespaces; however, a segment can span multiple data
files that belong to the same tablespace.
• Each segment is made up of one or more extents.
Extents
Space is allocated to a segment by extents.
• One or more extents make up a segment.
– When a segment is created, it consists of at least one extent.
– As the segment grows, extents are added to the segment.
– The DBA can manually add extents to a segment.
• An extent is a set of contiguous Oracle blocks.
• An extent may not span a data file, but must exist in one data file.

Nothing changes in the dba_tablespaces view, only in dba_data_files view where the new data_file is now available

As mentioned you have to increase the MAXEXTENTS parameter of the tablespace TEMP:

ALTER TABLESPACE temp
DEFAULT STORAGE (
INITIAL 2M
NEXT 2M
MAXEXTENTS 999 );

Yes you have to increase the maxextents from 100 to 999

i cannot increase the maxextents to 999
because my db_blok_size is = 2048
and oracle suggest to increase it to 121.

after increase the maxextents to 121,
the problem is still happened.

my db is Oracle 7.3.4.0.1

maybe i should increase the db_blok_size
now.
any help??

and my dbf file is 43.

is this parameter has something to do
with my problem currently.

thanks.

If your oracle is 7.3.4 or newer you CAN set maxextents over 121 even to 'unlimited':

alter tablespace temp default storage (maxextents 1000);
alter tablespace temp default storage (maxextents unlimited);
