Can I import specific tables from usermode_exported file?

Yes you can. It does not matter how the export file was created, you can import specific tables from that dump file. For instance, assume that the dump file was created as follows:

exp userid=system file=my_dump.dmp owner=SCOTT

To import just the SCOTT.EMP and SCOTT.DEPT tables from this dump file, use the following import command:

imp userid=system file=my_dump.dmp
tables=scott.emp,scott.dept

You can import specific tables from a full database export, a schema owner export, and from a table export.
