    i want to add partition to my table, raised this error:

    ORA-14074: partition bound must collate higher than that of the last partition

    i think that raised error, because i have a partition with "MaxValue".

    please help me to solve that!

    This error happens when you try to add or create a new partition to a partitioned table between two partitions, or the new partition is located at the beginning or in the middle of a table, or if the partition bound on the highest partition is MAXVALUE (i.e. original partition was created with the highest partition defined as MAXVALUE on the partition key).

    You can verify that this is the case by the following query

    Code (SQL):

    SELECT high_value
      FROM dba_tab_partitions
     WHERE TABLE_NAME = 'table_name';
    What you need to do is SPLIT the Partition, like this for example

    Code (SQL):
        SPLIT PARTITION pmaxvalue
        AT (40)
        INTO (  PARTITION newpartition,
                PARTITION pmaxvalue
