ORA-39802: ADT not allowed in direct path mode tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonMay 17,  2015

Question:  In my setup during IMPDP , I got the ORA-39802 as compilation warning for the object type view, trigger, package and procedure.  What is the ORA-39802 error and how do I get around it?

Answer:  Oracle ORA-39802 error during a data pump export appears to be a limitation of the direct path export, which does not support abstract data types (ADT):

ORA-39802: ADT object column string specified a SQL expression which is not allowed in direct path mode.

Cause: The ADT column reported in the error specified a SQL expression which returned the ADT. This is not supported.

Action: Remove the SQL expression.
