    permanent solution: convert your tablespace to locally managed tablespace with ASSM. read SAP note 646681.

    until then, go into SE14 and check STORAGE PARAMETERS

    click on F5 to go in CHANGE mode

    change MAXIMUM EXTENTS to 505

    change NEXT EXTENT to a much higher value such as 10240.

    good luck.

    Hello Yatin,

    here we go ...

    shell> sqlplus / as sysdba
    SQL> alter table <TABLE> storage (maxextents unlimited);

    The value for MAXEXTENTS is stored in the SAP DDIC table TGORA. For more information - please check sapnote #666061
