Don't really need everything - select partition_name from dba_tab_partitions where owner = 'SCHEMA1' and table_name = 'TABLE1';

You're building a dynamic partition name based upon current date.

What is the output of: dbms_output.put_line ('lv_partition: '||lv_partition)

(You'll need to do set serveroutput on first in order to see it).

Does that partition exist ?

Your code has an error.

Look:
The EXECUTE IMMEDIATE can't solve the value of lv_partition as its a variable of pl/SQL block

That's why "partition lv_partition does not exists". It works for the SQL sentence, but execute immediate is a literal.

    EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'ALTER TABLE SCHEMA1.TABLE1 DROP PARTITION(lv_partition)';

You should write:

EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'ALTER TABLE SCHEMA1.TABLE1 DROP PARTITION('''||lv_partition||''')';

To solve lv_partition value took from the previous select into statement.

Hope it helps,
Javier
