I want to import a .dmp file into my Oracle 9i database, and when I try to do so using the SQL prompt it gives me an error: "SP2-0734: unknown command beginning 'imp pis/pi...' - rest of line ignored." Please help me. How should I solve this, or what are the various commands which will help me in importing?

You cannot import a dump file with SQL*Plus. The correct utility is the 'imp' utility. The following will import the entire contents of the dump file:
imp userid=system/manager file=my_dump.dmp full=y log=imp.log
All messages will be logged to the imp.log file. For more information on the export and import utilities, please refer to the Oracle Utilities Guide which can be found at http://tahiti.oracle.com.
