You are also missing a leading '/':

You could be right.  Never tried it.

Don't use RESIZE and MAXSIZE together in one statement!

MAXSIZE is meaningful only if AUTOEXTEND is ON.

Why would one try to resize a datafile which has AUTOEXTEND ON?

So do you want to desrease the size? That's the only use of RESIZE for an AUTOEXTEND datafile which could make some sense, IMHO.

And, actually, if both modifications have to be performed, use two distinct statements!

It also doesn't seem to make sense to resize basically, a 6 Gig datafile and only let it autoextend another 50 Meg.

I would hope the NEXT size on a 6 Gig datafile would be more than 50M.  I would probably have it autoextend 1 Gig at a time since that is a pretty expensive operation.

I also confirmed that woolmilkporc said:  It does need to be two commands.

I just tested it here:

If RESIZE is being used nothing else can be specified in ALTER DATABASE DATAFILE ...

Also, MAXSIZE cannot be specified without AUTOEXTEND ON preceeding it.
