I really need this question answered quickly -
The problem is, I have a customer with 7.3 alpha, and we use 9i intel. Also I have a copy of 18.104.22.168.0 and we need to dump files from the later version (preferably 9i) and imp it into 7.3
My question therefore is; can imp73 read oracle 22.214.171.124.0 or 9i exp files (is there some sort of compatibility mode?)?
Oh, and using the older version of exp on the newer database won't work as they are for differing architechures (intel/alpha) and i don't have a 7.3 intel licence).
Also using CSV or other flat files is not an option - the files must be able to be imported using imp73?
