Q

Exporting data to .dat file then into another data table

I want to export data from a single data table to a .dat file. Also I want to then import the data from the .dat

file into another database's data table. Both source and destination tables have same design. How can I do this?

You can use Oracle's export/import utilities. First, export just the table as follows:

 
 exp userid=system@source file=table.dat tables=table_name
 
Then import the table into another database:
 
 imp userid=system@dest file=table.dat tables=table_name
