    You can let Export prompt you for parameters by entering the EXP
    command followed by your username/password:

    Example: EXP SCOTT/TIGER

    Or, you can control how Export runs by entering the EXP command followed
    by various arguments. To specify parameters, you use keywords:

    Format: EXP KEYWORD=value or KEYWORD=(value1,value2,...,valueN)
    or TABLES=(T1:P1,T1:P2), if T1 is partitioned table

    USERID must be the first parameter on the command line.

    Keyword Description (Default) Keyword Description (Default)
    USERID username/password FULL export entire file (N)
    BUFFER size of data buffer OWNER list of owner usernames
    FILE output files (EXPDAT.DMP) TABLES list of table names
    COMPRESS import into one extent (Y) RECORDLENGTH length of IO record
    GRANTS export grants (Y) INCTYPE incremental export type
    INDEXES export indexes (Y) RECORD track incr. export (Y)
    DIRECT direct path (N) TRIGGERS export triggers (Y)
    LOG log file of screen output STATISTICS analyze objects (ESTIMATE)
    ROWS export data rows (Y) PARFILE parameter filename
    CONSISTENT cross-table consistency(N) CONSTRAINTS export constraints (Y)

    OBJECT_CONSISTENT transaction set to read only during object export (N)
    FEEDBACK display progress every x rows (0)
    FILESIZE maximum size of each dump file
    FLASHBACK_SCN SCN used to set session snapshot back to
    FLASHBACK_TIME time used to get the SCN closest to the specified time
    QUERY select clause used to export a subset of a table
    RESUMABLE suspend when a space related error is encountered(N)
    RESUMABLE_NAME text string used to identify resumable statement
    TTS_FULL_CHECK perform full or partial dependency check for TTS
    VOLSIZE number of bytes to write to each tape volume
    TABLESPACES list of tablespaces to export
    TRANSPORT_TABLESPACE export transportable tablespace metadata (N)
    TEMPLATE template name which invokes iAS mode export

    Export terminated successfully without warnings.

    You can't tell from the exp log file which version of exp utility was used to produce that dump file. To find out which release of exp was used, you can do one of two things:

    a) Open your .dmp file with some text editor - in the very beginning of the file you'll find the release of the exp used. Something like "EXPORT:V08.01.07". This is not realy a good option if the dmp file is veeeery big

    b) Show what's in the dmp file by using imp with SHOW=Y and without specifying either FULL=Y nor FROMUSER/TOUSER - that way you won't actualy perform the import, because it will complain that you have to specify FULL or FROMUSER/TOUSER, but it will report which release of exp the dmp was produced with. Something like this:
    C:\Temp>imp system/manager@o901 file=test1.dmp show=y
