Q

Where is the export data stored?

I am using a command to export a table. The export is done successfully, but I have no idea where this export data is stored. Where is this file stored so that I can use it to import on a different machine?

I am using the following command to export the table:
EXP user/password@instance TABLE=(table)
The export is done successfully. But I have no idea where this export data is stored. Where is this file stored so that I can use it to import on a different machine?
The dump file will be in the directory your session was in when you invoked the exp utility. The default file name of the dump file is expdat.dmp. You can specify a file name for the dump file with the FILE= parameter. Optionally, you can include a directory path in the file name. The following examples illustrate this for Unix and Windows respectively:

exp userid=user/pass@tnsalias table=(my_table)
file=/home/oracle/my_table.dmp
exp userid=user/pass@tnsalias table=(my_table)
file=c:tempmy_table.dmp
