User tried to alter a table to have partition tablespace. He got error 'At least one column must be specified to be used in partitions'.
He could not find on (alter table - Columns tab) where he can change 'Use in partitions' to be TRUE
The table is technically "incomplete" because the pending partition index has not been built.
When this is the case, right-click the table and use CREATE INDEX to create the partitioned INDEX rather than using ALTER TABLE.
You can use ALTER TABLE if the table was originally defined in a regular tablespace and you want to move it to a newly defined PARTITIONED TABLESPACE. When the TABLE gets defined into a newly created PARTITION TABLESPACE, then use CREATE INDEX to create the PARTITION INDEX.
