Dumping LOB columns into another table

Is there a good way of dumping a table that contains LOB columns and importing it to another table? If yes, please...

let me know how.

There are a couple of ways. First, you can use the export/import utilities provided with Oracle. Just export the table into a dump file. Then, use import to import into another database. If both the source and destination tables are in the same instance, then you can just use an SQL commands to move the data as follows:

INSERT INTO dest_table SELECT * FROM source_table;
Since the columns are LOBs and not LONGs, the above command will work.
