You don't increase the size of a table.  They grow on their own.  As long as there is space in the tablespace, you don't need to do anything to grow a table.

Are you seeing some sort of error that  you need help with?

Tables are stored in extents.  When the current extent is full, then another empty extent will be taken from the preallocated space within the tablespace.  Nothing needs to be done by the administrator or user to do that.  It happens automatically.

One thing which will be done is that adding of additional/more storage to the underlying file systems of the database tablespaces when they get filled up.

Thanks,
