Partitioning an unpartitioned table

Postby kaushik.nandy » Mon Dec 24, 2012 7:19 am


I have an existing table that is not partitioned .
How do I create partition on the table without dropping the table.
The Table may or may not have constraints like primary key.
Assume that the table is empty.

Is there any way to partition the table using ALTER TABLE ADD PARTITION ....... syntax ??
I have using oracle 11g.
