the dmp file might be created from a different version of exp.
use the same version to import or
install the views ( from the version used to export).

Hi Mahesh,

I exported the dmp file in a 10g client and 'am getting the below error when I try to import it from a 11g client to a 10g dB.

IMP-00058: ORACLE error 942 encountered
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist
IMP-00058: ORACLE error 942 encountered
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

It works fine if I import it to a 11g client to 11g server or 10g client to 10g server. But most of our client machines are equipped with 11g and the servers are in 10g. So I need to get this thing going.

You have mentioned below to install the views as a remedy. Could you give a bit more details on that?

Thanks,
Sharmin

Hi Bhadresh,

I went through the website and it says that,
Export_From-----Import_To-----Export_Version_to_Use-----Import_Version_to_Use
Release 10.2-----Release 11.2 Data Pump-----Export Release 10.2 Data Pump-----Import Release 11.2

In my case, the Import_To is 10.2 and Export_From is 10.2. But the Import_Version_to_Use is 11.2.

If you look at my imp log, it says clearly that the export was done in 10.2 and import is done using 11.2.
Please see below:

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Use a 10g client to import into a 10g database.

And before use a 10g client to export.
Always use the lowest version of the tools.

Hi Joy/Michael,

I have used 10g client to 10g server and 11g client to 11g server. Both are working fine.
The challenge here is, I have an installer which has a code snippet that imports a table.
This could be run from any clients. Our company has recently upgraded all these clients to 11g, but the server remains in 10g.
So is there any ways, I can import a dmp file from 11g client to 10g server?

Thanks,
Sharmin

You repeatedly talk about V10 & V11 HOWEVER

original post deals with obsoleted & unsupported V8.1.6
Please clarify.

This question is not clear.
You cannot import a 11g export file into a 10g database (unless you are very lucky).

Hi Michael,

I had mentioned it before as below:

"In my case, the Import_To is 10.2 and Export_From is 10.2. But the Import_Version_to_Use is 11.2."

I have a 10g export file and needs to be imported from 11g client to 10g server.

Black Swann,
In this post Mahesh talked about the usage of some views, hence I replied back to the same post.

Thanks,
Sharmin

You tested it and it failed, so it does not work, so you have to use an appropriate client version.

Guys,

I guess if I use expdp it might work with the target server's version.
It is mentioned here (Add http and www before "dbforums.com/oracle/1643901-importing-dump-file-oracle-11g-oracle-10g.html").

Anyways, thanks for the helps.

Thanks,
Sharmin

Actually, that was from a different person 6 years ago. New poster jumped onto this thread as it was a similar problem.

You are not really giving good details. And export file created by exp command cannot be used by impdp. It can only be used by imp.

Do you already have the export file and cannot create a new one?

Why not export with 11g client and then import with 11g client. you might get lucky there.

Hi Joy,

I am not really sure what extra details you need.
I said above that,
"In my case, the Import_To is 10.2 and Export_From is 10.2. But the Import_Version_to_Use is 11.2."

I have a 10g export file and needs to be imported from 11g client to 10g server.

Also, I know that the exp file is different from expdp file.
What I plan to do is, imp the 10g export file to 10g and expdp it to a new dmp file with target VERSION 10g.


Again, the import works from a 11g client to 10g server with a 10g export dmp.
But it gives out, table does not exist error even the table exists and with ignore=y option


My assumption is, with this expdp file, it would work if then do an import data pump with any higher clients.
I have still not completed it. If this gets successful, will let you know.

Why not export with 11g client and then import with 11g client. you might get lucky there.
In my case, I can have 10g clients as well as 11g clients, but server will be always 10g.

Thanks,
Sharmin

So is that an export from a 10g database? Or is it taken with 10g export? Or both?

There are 4 relevant versions here:
Source DB
Target DB
Import
Export

Plus you should get in the habit of stating the full version - 4 decimals.

Hi cookiemonster,

Please find the details below which I already mentioned above with :

[cookiemonster]
So is that an export from a 10g database? Or is it taken with 10g export? Or both?
[me]
The export file is generated using a 10.02.01 exp.exe utility from a 10.02.01 Server.
Mentioned above -> "In my case, the Import_To is 10.2 and Export_From is 10.2. But the Import_Version_to_Use is 11.2."

I apologize for not keeping the 4 decimals separately. But it exists in the import log above
Import: Release 11.2.0.1.0 - Production on Wed Dec 1 16:33:03 2010
Export file created by EXPORT:V10.02.01 via conventional path


[cookiemonster]
And what's that going to accomplish apart from making things more compilcated?
[me]
My requirement is to import this 10.02.01 dmp file to a 10.02.01 server. And let me repeat, this is a part of the installer and it can be run from any client machines which is equipped with either 10g or 11g clients. This dmp files contain some LOB columns and hence could not be given as INSERT statements.

[cookiemonster]
So why not use the 10g import? That would be the actual correct way of doing it as previously stated.
What's the point of having 11g clients if the DB is always going to be 10g?
[me]
As I told above, this is something which is not in my hand. I am a poor consultant. It is a part of the installer and this is the requirement. By hook or crook I should meet it. Sad

Thanks,
Sharmin

You tested it and it failed, so it does not work, so you have to use an appropriate client version.

"It is not possible" is a valid answer to impossible requirements, even for a poor consultant which first duty is advice before making.

Hi Michel,

"It is not possible" is not a valid answer for me because I already have a work around. If I had only that answer with me, I wouldn't be working. Smile
The work around is pretty straight forward,
1. Keep 2 export files, one from 10g and other from 11g.
2. Determine the Oracle client version from my installer and import the appropriate dmp file.

It is working but does not give a programmer's satisfaction (probably I am too much over concerned about the quality, standards etc....Smile).
I was looking for a better option and wished to see if you could help me.

Thanks,
Sharmin
