what do you mean by "swapping"  that sounds like you want to put the data somewhere else and put data from the somewhere else into your partition.

If so,  what is the "somewhere else"  and what is the data there?

what does your table look like, what are the child tables?  What do you want to do with the child table data?
Are there cascading contraints between the parent and children?

Thanks for replying .
I am rephrasing my question.
I have 3 tables in production  which have  around  200 partitions  each beginning from 2003.
I would like to move any data from all 3 tables onto a different schema and different tables that is prior to 1/1/2008.
What would be the best way ?
thanks you

you could have requested a delete rather than accepting the answer.  I'm sorry I missed your followup.

anyway, for what you are trying to do...

use dynamic sql to generate code of the form...

create table new_schema.new_table_name as select * from old_schema.old_table where data_date_column >= to_date('20030101','yyymmdd')
