“ORA-14006: invalid partition name” in TOAD


After issueing below SQL from the TOAD editor:

alter table myschema.mytable truncate partition p20101002;

It gives below error:
ORA-14006: invalid partition name


TOAD’s engine sometimes cannot correctly evaulate “;” character at the end.

Remove “;” character, or execute it from sqlplus which I did for weeks before finding exact cause:)

    Thanks for posting this!
    I just spent an hour trying to understand why a simple drop partition doesn’t work… removing the “;” did the trick!
    such a strange bug. I will post it as a bug in quest’s support.

    Superb site you have here but I was curious if you
    realized of any discussion boards that deal with the same topics talked about
    here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get advice from other
    experienced individuals that promote the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, feel free to inform me. Cheers!
