I am working on Oracle 10g DB.

Can we create Index-Organized table with compress all operations?

I tried, it gave me error. But if I don't use All operations table get created. And if I view the table script is it like

Create table sample as
primary key(......))
organization index
compress 5

What is this compress 5 mean? What are the merits and demerits of IOT table without compress
and IOT table with compress?

Thanks in Advance.

IOT are indexes. It uses index compression: the 5 first columns of the index will not be repeated for each index entry.
You will have an error if the index has less than 6 columns.

how many columns do you have in your table?

If you table that you are creating is having 4 columns then try to use  5 and if it has  more then use as  franckpachot: suggested.
