My customer has Oracle 10g database, and my test database is Oracle 9i. My customer made an export of data with exp.exe version 10. I can't make an import with my imp.exe version 9 because it is a lower version.
So, I try to import data (that was exported with exp.exe version 10) with imp.exe version 10 into my 9i database, and I get an error:
IMP-00058: ORACLE error 6550 encountered ORA-06550: line 1, column 33: PLS-00302: component 'SET_NO_OUTLINES' must be declared ORA-06550: line 1, column 7: PL/SQL: Statement ignored IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully
Is it OK that I try to import data into database version 9i with imp.exe version 10g? Or should I tell my customer to make an export with exp.exe version 9i?
