    Import Table results in ORA-00936

    hi guys, I'm trying to import content only from a number of tables and it is resulting in the following log file for two out of 50 tables. I'm unsure as to what the cause would be as the 00936 relates to an expression missing or misused, yet I'm importing data so do not see how this can be relevant...

    Bug 1936817 Fixed In Ver: 10i
    =======================
    Abstract:
    Exp Spatial with NLS_LANG in Swedish Gives ORA-936 or PLS-103 During Import
    Details:
    If you get error 'ORA-936: missing expression' whilst importing an export dump which was generated with a different NLS_LANG & implicit NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS setting then you may be hitting this bug.
    If NLS_LANG is set to a language where NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS=",."

    I don't think it's related to that fix;

    "If you get error 'ORA-936: missing expression' whilst importing an export dump which was generated with a different NLS_LANG & implicit NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS setting then you may be hitting this bug.
    If NLS_LANG is set to a language where NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS=",.""

    The other tables were imported altogether with most passing and two giving this result. I then tried to import the tables explicitly and it resulted in the same error message. I'm still trying to gain access to Metalink through my company to search known issues and fixes, but any further help would be greatly appreciated.
