IMP / EXP statements from DOS prompt

Hello All, EXP / IMP commands cannot be run from DOS prompt. The error message says that the command is not valid. Checking with Microsoft's website says that this is by design for systems that were upgraded to Windows 2000 from NT or 95. Could you suggest a surefire workaround for that? It's not my m/c that's facing this problem, but in a client's office. Regards, Ramkumar

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ll probably have to ensure that the environment variable is set to search the oracle installation for EXP and IMP.

Control Panel, System, then the advanced tab, and environment variables.

The system variables PATH would need to have the ‘oracle_bin’ directory. Example, my install is into C:oracleora92bin

Add this, and it’ll find the exp and imp executables.
