I would like to know about how to alter maxextents in Oracle.
To modify the maxextents for an object, you'll need to know if it is a table or an index. I'll show you how to do this for a table. It is similar for an index.
You'll want to use the ALTER TABLE command to modify the storage characteristics of the table. For instance:
ALTER TABLE my_table STORAGE( maxextents 505 );Substitute the appropriate number of maximum extents for '505' in the above command.
