This is gonna sound silly but I can't seem to get my create tablespace to work. Never done one before. Says I need a datafile?

I'm using a virtual box for queries to mess around but I want to know how to create tablespace for my user newuser

i tried "create tablespace newspace" after granting myself the create tablespace priv.

I want to know how to do the default, and a basic non-default version of create tablespace please

Here 'ya go!
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14200/statements_7003.htm

Your DBA must grant you the CREATE TABLESPACE role; then after it's created, the usual steps are to be granted QUOTA xx | UNLIMITED; create table(s) in that tablespace, etc.  Also, the O/S account used has to have write/execute permission on the datafile's directory or file system.

so I don't need a datafile or path to give to the query like this example I saw on psoug?

CREATE TABLESPACE uwdata DATAFILE
'c:\oracle\oradata\orabase\uwdata01.dbf' SIZE 150M,
'c:\oracle\oradata\orabase\uwdata02.dbf' SIZE 100M
AUTOEXTEND OFF
BLOCKSIZE 8192
FORCE LOGGING
EXTENT MANAGEMENT LOCAL UNIFORM SIZE 256K
FLASHBACK ON;

Check the doc link provided.

If you don't provide a full path, there is a default: DB_CREATE_FILE_DEST

Unless I'm missing something obvious, which I do too often, the 2nd and 3rd rows provide the datafiles, fully pathed.  In case this is new, the tablespace is a logical component of the instance; the datafiles are physical -- so it's a mapping process between the two.

Error messages would be nice.

I assume you have a /data folder and oracle has read/write access to it?

Your second example shifted from a Windows file format to a UNIX one.  Which OS did you mean?
