Exchanging a Range, Hash, or List Partition
To exchange a partition of a range, hash, or list-partitioned table with a nonpartitioned table, or the reverse, use the ALTER TABLE ... EXCHANGE PARTITION statement. An example of converting a partition into a nonpartitioned table follows. In this example, table stocks can be range, hash, or list partitioned.

ALTER TABLE stocks
    EXCHANGE PARTITION p3 WITH stock_table_3;


What would be the statement to go from a non-partition table (stock_table_3)to a hash partition table (stocks)?

It would be the same statement, but you must look at "<with | without> VALIDATION" parameter and indexes.

So it would also be, even though you are going from a non-partition table to a partition table,
 ALTER TABLE stocks
    EXCHANGE PARTITION p3 WITH stock_table_3;

Yes, you can exchange partition with non-partitioned table only. But remember if you use without validation parameter data in exchanged partition could be not match partition key. And all global indexes are marked as unusable.

When you say you can exchange partition with non-partition table only, can I also exchange a non-partition with a partition?

"You can convert a partition (or subpartition) into a non-partitioned table, and a non-partitioned table into a partition (or subpartition) of a partitioned table by exchanging their data segments."

It means that your statement is correct and should works.

OK, so can my partition table have lets say 8 partitions and if so, when I do the exchange from the non-partition table do I have to do the exchange into only one partition and then split into the other 7 partitions?

No, non-partitioned table is switched with only one of 8 partitions. If you want exchange all (8) partitions from partitioned table you should have 8 non-partitioned tables. One non-partitioned table exchange data with one partition from partitioned table.

You have data from partition in non-partitioned table, and ie you can backup data and drop table... First of all why you want exchange partition? What do you need to do?

To load the data into a partition table. I am getting this error after exchange/split. What is wrong with my syntax?

alter table schema.table_partition
   exchange partition p1 with table schema.table
   WITHOUT VALIDATION;

Alter table schema.table_partition split partition at (p1) values
  (Partition p1,
   Partition p2,
   Partition p3,
   Partition p4,
   Partition p5,
   Partition p6,
   Partition p7,
   Partition p8);

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-14028: missing AT or VALUES keyword

SPLIT PARTITION clause cannot be used for hash partitions.
I think you should use:
CREATE TABLE table_partition
PARTITION BY HASH (hash_col)
PARTITIONS 8
PARALLEL (degree 4)
NOLOGGING
as
select * from table;

Open in new window
