You want to use interval partitioning for a specific number of partitions (N) and then drop the oldest one with you get to N+1. For example, you have created a partitioned table with interval partitioning using an interval of 1 day. You want to keep 30 days of data and on day 31, drop the oldest partition. However, when you do that, you get an "ORA-14758: Last partition in the range section cannot be dropped."
