Re: Add new partition for Range by date

ADD PARTITION does not (I think) do the right thing in certain edge cases.

The last RANGE partition is declared "LESS THAN MAXVALUE". If any rows have been inserted into that partition, they may need to be moved into the new partition. I suspect REORGANIZE PARTITION (not ADD PARTITION) is the only way to do that.

I bring this up because I use the 'last' partition to catch rows in case the maintenance script fails to run and the ADD/REORGANIZE is not created before rows are inserted.

Jon, what do you think?
