You added a new column to an existing partitioned table and also the temporary table. Now when you try to exchange a partition with the temporary table, you receive the following error:
ALTER TABLE mytable EXCHANGE PARTITION part_1706 WITH TABLE temp WITH VALIDATION;
ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-01407: cannot update ("SYS"."HIST_HEAD$"."COL#") to NULL
You have tried the workaround in note: EXCHANGE PARTITION Results In ORA-01407: Cannot Update ("SYS"."HIST_HEAD$"."COL#") To NULL (Doc ID 1677855.1) but you still get the error.
You added new column(s) to both original and temp table.
