Thread: import to where?

    I am simply trying to import a full export file.

    I can do it from the command prompt, but I am not sure if I should be setting the FROMUSER and TOUSER parameters (since I get errors of "user does not exist)."

    I tried it with using the user id that I found in the log. I received no errors, but can't find the database. I thought that I could simply import this full database, and then make the programming changes that I need to make. I am importing from a cd...my question is--to where? I am specifying user/password@databasename, but can't find it in my sql workspace.

    CAn anyone help? or, point me in the right direction?

    Try using the GUI to import data. The Gui has never given me any problems

    Normally full exp/imp is done as user system or user having privilege to export full database.
    when u do a full database exp/imp users are also exported and then imported into new database.so u may not have the user in the new database yet.
    imp system/pw@new_db file=full_path.dmp log=full_path.log ignore=y full=y
    before doing that u can try with show=y instead of full=y.that way it will just generate a log without importing and show errors if any.

    (imp or imp80 or imp73 depending on the version u use for 8i/8/7)
