Q

Importing/Exporting selected tables

In import/export, I'd like to import only selected tables, but the number of tables is too large. I don't want to use import ("tables=tab1,tab2..." and so on) because number of tables is too high. Please show me the best way to import selected tables.

You can use an * to import all tables but there is not an option to exclude tables (which is what would make your request possible). If you want to import only a selected set of tables, you'll have to list them individually.

You may want to research the transportable tablespace capability if you're using 8i. Using this method, you can export/import an entire tablespace at a time. If the tables you are wanting to import are in one or two tablespaces, you can just import those tablespaces directly and bypass having to specify table names for the import.
