'exp' not recognized
I have Oracle 9i client version installed on my machine and am not able to do exp/imp. I get " 'exp' is not recognized as an internal or external command" from my command prompt. I am running on Windows XP2002. Is there anything in the config I can change or do I have to re-install Oracle again.
Have'nt you installed the server version?
Can you locate exp.exe in bin?

'exp' not recognized
it depends on the client you have installed, if it is light client then you wont be able to do it.
Then run the catexp.sql or catalog.sql script
I have the client version installed and am not able to locate exp.exe. Will try installing the server version.

also try running the exp/imp by specifying the full path to the executable. if %ORACLE%\bin is no in your PATH then just tying exp/imp is not good enough
how can it be the only issue? He has already said it isnt installed!!

You can get the executable from another XP systems you have, provide they are the same Oracle version or higher.
If this is for your personal use then you can download from Oracle.
All the best!
I got the executabels from a different computer with the same Oracle and OS version as mine. When I try to run the exp, this is what I see : Any ideas ?
