I am on Win NT Oracle 8I version 8.1.5 and want to export/import to another machine with Oracle 7.3.3. Question is on the 8i server, if I run Catexp7.sql to create the views so that I can create the export file that 7.3.3 will read, I am wondering if that will mess-up my export/import utilities on 8i version 8.1.5? And, do I have to goback on my 8i server and run catexp to get back exp/imp for 8i?
hmm... as far as I know, the correct catexp.sql has to be run against the db in question. Of course, problems can arise if importing an 8i on v7, since it's like a downgrade, and esp. if the 8i db contains LONG datatype.
