Answer by Edward Stoever:
have always used exp as a single command, not
interactively. It is claiming the table does not
exist, but I don't see it asking for a table - yet.
Why not try it as a single
command.... like this:
exp scott/tiger file=emp.dmp
that you are breaking the second rule there, and you
should be exporting using an 8.1.7 client.
Whenever you are moving data
between different releases of the Oracle database,
the following basic rules apply:
* The Import utility and the database to which data
is being imported (the target database) must be the
* The version of
the Export utility must be equal to the earliest
version of the source or target database.
For example, to create an export file for an import
into a later release database, use a version of the
Export utility that is equal to the source database.
Conversely, to create an export file for an import
into an earlier release database, use a version of
the Export utility that is equal to the version of
the target database.
