Creating List-Partitioned Index-Organized Tables

The other option for partitioning index-organized tables is to use the list method. In the following example, the sales index-organized table is partitioned by the list method. Example 4-24 uses the example tablespace, which is part of the sample schemas in your seed database. Normally you would specify different tablespace storage for different partitions.

Example 4-24 Creating a list-partitioned index-organized table

CREATE TABLE sales(acct_no NUMBER(5), 
                   acct_name CHAR(30), 
                   amount_of_sale NUMBER(6), 
                   week_no INTEGER,
                   sale_details VARCHAR2(1000),
             PRIMARY KEY (acct_no, acct_name, week_no)) 
             INCLUDING week_no
             OVERFLOW TABLESPACE example
     PARTITION BY LIST (week_no)
            (PARTITION VALUES (1, 2, 3, 4) 
                   TABLESPACE example,
             PARTITION VALUES (5, 6, 7, 8) 
                   TABLESPACE example OVERFLOW TABLESPACE example,
                   TABLESPACE example);
