How To Create a Table in a Specific Tablespace?

After you have created a new tablespace, you can give it to your users for them to create tables in the new tablespace. To create a table in a specific tablespace, you need to use the TABLESPACE clause in the CREATE TABLE statement. Here is a sample script:

SQL> connect SYSTEM/fyicenter
Connected.

SQL> CREATE TABLESPACE my_space 
  2  DATAFILE '/temp/my_space.dbf' SIZE 10M;
Tablespace created.

SQL> connect HR/fyicenter
Connected.

SQL> CREATE TABLE my_team TABLESPACE my_space 
  2  AS SELECT * FROM employees;
Table created.

SQL> SELECT table_name, tablespace_name, num_rows
  2  FROM USER_TABLES
  3  WHERE tablespace_name in ('USERS', 'MY_SPACE');

TABLE_NAME                     TABLESPACE_NAME    NUM_ROWS
------------------------------ ---------------- ----------
MY_TEAM                        MY_SPACE           -  
EMPLOYEES                      USERS              107
