    export/import in 10g reorganizing the table

    I came to know that while exporting and importing the data into a new database in 10g the table will be reorganized as part of this process. Is this correct? If yes, my question will be

    how does an export/import "guarantee" 100% every time that a re-order of the table by PK has taken place?

    regards

    It doesn't.
    Not that kind of reorganization, you can achieve defragmentation in both table and indexes by exp/imp the table but re-ordering? nahhh
