Questions and Answers
 Q1. Will it be possible to change monthly partitioning to daily partitioning after enabling the virtual column?
 Q2. If there is a process in place to refresh test boxes with production snapshots which does not require bringing down applications on production system to get the snapshot (DBA uses RMAN backup), does it need the virtual column to be disabled in this case? If yes, then how?
 Q3. Any Oracle's guideline as to what should be the partition frequency ( monthly / weekly / Daily) ?
