Appending updated date using import

Can we append the data from an updated database into the database of the same structure using import?

Can we append the data from an updated database into the database of the same structure using import?
Yes, you can. Just import with IGNORE=Y. With this setting, the imp process will ignore the error when it tries to create the table that already exists. The data will be inserted into that table. Keep in mind that you will still have to deal with any constraints. So if you have a PK constraint on the table, new rows cannot violate that constraint.
