Hi Experts,

Could you please help me with a solution for dynamic partitioning in SQL Server including the creation of partition, splitting , Merging , Switching  and archiving to the history table  .

Criteria :
1.maintain 3 months in the current table .
2.older than 3 months , create,split,merge and  switch the partition (partition switch in/switch out)
3. Move to history table older  than 3 months
4. Archive and purge the data older than 5 years

All these steps should be performed dynamically in SQL SERVER.  Please help me with the solution with an example source code. Your help is greatly appreciated.  

Regards,
srk

There is a good article and 13 SQL script files that you could find by if you do a Google search on any of the names listed below:

1_dbo.fn_GetPartitionRangeValueForPartitionFunctionAndNumber.sql
2_dbo.fn_GetPartitionNumberForPartitionFunctionAndValue.sql
