Oracle error 6550 may mean incorrect Oracle export version

Oracle expert Brian Peasland explains why you might get an Oracle error 6550 when using the wrong Oracle export version in this tip.

I want to know what the following error above means is, and how to solve it:

EXP-00056: ORACLE error 6550 encountered 
ORA-06550: line 1, column 41:
PLS-00302: component 'SET_NO_OUTLINES' must be declared 
ORA-06550: line 1, column 15: 
PL/SQL: Statement ignored
EXP-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully 
The most common reason for Oracle error 6550 is that your export version is higher than your database version. Use the correct exp version for your database and you will not receive this error.
