In Row chaining basically it happens on the pctused case.
I.e for row insertion case. IF the insert(required) row
size is greater than the available row size then the value
will go to next row . Similarly again if the next row size
is greater than the available row size then the value will
go to next row in a CHAINED manner.That is called Row-
So there is a view called DBA_tables/USER_tables we can get
the column name avg-row_length and chain_cnt .
In the above cloumn we can get the no of row
This is the concept of ROW chaining..
If this happen then we can reorg the object.
