I export (EXP80.exe) my DBMS (FULL=Y) to a dump file. After all user, referential integrity, post tables, and synonyms, I get an EXP-00008 error: ORA-000959 tablespace "TEMPORARY_DATA" does not exist. I have looked all over to find this table but cannot. What's going on?

When you perform an export of a table, index, or both, the dump file contains the CREATE command to create that table or index. This CREATE command includes the TABLESPACE clause to create the table or index in the same tablespace it resides in the source database.

You can pre-create the tablespace before you attempt the import operation. You can create the tablespace in any valid directory, but it must have the same tablespace name.

Additionally, you can pre-create the table in another tablespace. Then import with the IGNORE=Y to ignore the fact that the table already exists.
