Another Oracle note
15 July 2002 15:00
Another Oracle note. This note is related to metalink DocID 132904.1, which provides an import/export compatibility matrix for different versions of Oracle. I was attempting an export from a 9.2.0 database using the export tool from 8.1.6. According to this document this procedure should have worked fine. What it doesn't tell you is that along with the export utility from the lower version database you need the full client install (or at least more than just the executable itself) to make the export happen. Otherwise the export is bound to bail with ORA-00056. So you'll need to have the client install from the lower version on the same machine, or perhaps a client install from the lower version on another machine and run the export over Net8.
