Q

Working around dump file error

How do I work around the following IMP error: IMP-00051: Direct path exported dump file contains illegal column length? How would I clean or repair the file?
Unfortunately, you cannot repair this file. This is one of the downsides to exporting with DIRECT=Y. Your only option is to perform the export again with DIRECT=N.
