Are tablespaces on 32 bit and 64 bit oracle instances byte-compatible?

Are there differences in storage between 32 bit and 64 bit tablespaces - ie, can one use a tablespace created in a 64 bit oracle instance on a 32 bit oracle instance?

If they are the same endianness, yes. You would need to look at using Oracle's Transportable Tablespace feature to do this conversion for you. Specifically, check your source and destination platforms via the following:

SQL> COLUMN PLATFORM_NAME FORMAT A32 SQL> SELECT * FROM V$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM;

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
