About Creating Composite Range-Hash Partitioned Tables

The partitions of a range-hash partitioned table are logical structures only, because their data is stored in the segments of their subpartitions. As with partitions, these subpartitions share the same logical attributes. Unlike range partitions in a range-partitioned table, the subpartitions cannot have different physical attributes from the owning partition, although they are not required to reside in the same tablespace.

This section contains the following topics:
