Experts,

i have a stupid question. i am new to table partitions. i have a table called AA which is partitioned by range based on date. now i need add 2 more partitions to existing table AA. how do i add /create 2 more partitions to the existing partition table.
PARTITION ATN_1206 VALUES LESS THAN (TO_DATE(' 2007-01-01 00:00:00', 'SYYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS', 'NLS_CALENDAR=GREGORIAN'))
    LOGGING
    NOCOMPRESS
    TABLESPACE TXN_DATA2
    PCTUSED    40
    PCTFREE    10
    INITRANS   12
    MAXTRANS   255
    STORAGE    (
                INITIAL          16K
                NEXT             32M
                MINEXTENTS       1
                MAXEXTENTS       1000000
                PCTINCREASE      0
                FREELISTS        12
                FREELIST GROUPS  1
                BUFFER_POOL      DEFAULT
               ),  
 
this is the last partition i have. now i need to create 2 more partitons like ATN_0107 ,ATN_0207 like this.

you must have other partitions in your table that have upper bounds higher than what you've shown above.

Can you post your entire "create table" for the table as it is now?

you have a MAXVALUE partition.    So rather than adding new partitions to the end,  you will need to split the final partition into new segements.


alter table txn split partition txn_max at (to_date('2007-02-01','yyyy-mm-dd')) into (partition txn_0107, partition txn_max) update global indexes;

alter table txn split partition txn_max at (to_date('2007-03-01','yyyy-mm-dd')) into (partition txn_0207, partition txn_max) update global indexes;
