Hi all,
          I want to move a table A using tablespace TB1 to tablespace TB2. In order to achieve this, i can issue     " alter table A move tablespace TB2" , but my question is can we do it on fly? or do we have to restrict anything before carrying this out? And also if the table has any indexes or constraints, is it necessary to move them too? or are they not affected by this?

Thanks,
Harris.

If you are using
Alter table tblname move tablesspacename   ,you need to restrict transactions which are using this table.
You don't have to move the indexes with the table to new tablespace.Indexes will continue to exists  in the tablespace where they belong previously.

When you move the table to a new tablespace the status of the indexes will become Unusable.So after moving the table you are suppose to rebuild the indexes... If your table is partitioned table and indexes are global indexes then you can use UPDATE GLOBAL INDEXES clause while moving the table.

Or otherwise you can use DBMS_REDEFINITION package for moving the  table to new tablespace as gvsbnarayana specified.In this case ,you don't have to restric the transations which uses the table in question.

Hope this will be helpful to you..

As long as the table is not used by other programs/users for DML operations, you can move it to other tablespace.

But remember to rebuild the indexes of this table otherwise they will be in INVALID status and any program trying to access the data in the table with the help of the index will give an error.

Thanks
