Importing a dump file from a higher version

I have an Oracle8i V08.01.06 database dump file, which was created using conventional path. In my system, Oracle8i V08.01.04 is installed. When I tried to import the file, I get an error message, and it's quitting the process. Is there any solution for importing the higher version to a lower version database?

When creating an export dump file for an import into a lower release database, use a version of the EXPORT utility that is equal to the version of the target database (lowest version = 08.01.04 in this case) Also, you should always use a version of the IMPORT utility that is equal to the version of the target database as well. Try creating your dump file again, but this time make sure and use the export from your 8.01.04 version. That should take care of your problem!
