Subj:   Re: ALTER TABLE Question
From:   Jim Downey


I would think that if you don't have enough space to recreate the table, you probably will run out of space altering it also. There are others on this list who can comment better but I assume you don't have 200Gb available either in the database or on the system. If your space constraint is at the database level, my reply probably doesn't apply. Assuming you are short on system space, as the table is altered it journals so it can recover in case the command fails. Presumably the journal would take up as much space as the original table.
