Help with basic usermode export

I'm trying to perform a basic usermode export but am getting this error:

EXP-00056: ORACLE error 942 encountered
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist
EXP-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully

Below are my EXP parms:

c:exp hprdbadm/password@techstar1 file=HPRDBADM_vanilla.dmp l og=HPRDBADM_vanilla.log consistent=y buffer=1024000

This worked for me the other day. Any ideas?
Typically this problem is caused by using a newer version of the export utility to export data from a previous version database. For instance, you may be using a 9.0.1 export utility to export a version 8.1.7.x database. This problem may occur if you do not validate the PATH environemnt variable before starting the export. To avoid the problem, control your currently used PATH environment varialbe and review the export banner to verify the export version and database version.

For example, if you are using different versions you might see something like this:

  Export: Release - Production on Fri Dec 19 14:33:53 2002
  Export utility version

                              Database version
