    Hi,
    I have some tasks scheduled on my Windows NT 4 which take a export of the database.

    Whenever the tasks get executed I get the following error.

    Dr. watson error for windows NT

    An application error has occurred and an application log is being generated.
    exp80.exe
    Exception:access Violation (0xC0000005) Address 0x00403886.

    Its only this task which gives a problem others work fine.for example the task which takes a cold back up of the database runs fine.

    Thanks

    This is a bug with the Oracle import/export utility. You get this error if a schema being exported/imported has a name greater than 19 chars or so. It has been fixed in 8.1.7. Look up their bug list.

    Angry

    But it doesnt even start exporting the schema's. The moment it tries to execute the export utility it gives this error.

    Moreover I dont have any schemas whos name is greater than 19 characters.

    Thanks

    Talking

    Are you trying to export the full database or only specific schemas, b'coz I know of a bug in 8.1.5 which triggered the same error only for schema level export/import.

    Unhappy

    No, I am trying to do a full export of all the schemas using

    c:\>exp80.EXE system/fiftydollaroil@Manda full=y file= sid6\dlysid6.dmp consistent=y log=sid6\expLogSid6.log

    Thanks

    Does it crash if you execute it from a command line or only from a scheduled task?

    If so, you might be able to put the command line argument into a batch file and execute the batch file from the scheduler. Probably not the proper fix, I'm just taking a stab at it.

    It works from the command line as well as from within the batch file.

    Only when you schedule it does it give the Dr. Watson Error.

    Thanks
