    Unanswered: Import Problems

    Hi, I'm trying to import a .dmp file into a blank database.

    my command is: imp mgr@SID_Host fromuser=**** touser=sys log="mylog.log"

    I got this message:
    Connected to: Oracle8i Release - Production
    JServer Release - Production

    Export file created by EXPORT:V08.01.07 via conventional path

    Warning: the objects were exported by ****, not by you

    import done in WE8ISO8859P1 character set and WE8ISO8859P1 NCHAR character set
    . . importing table "table1" 451 rows imported
    . . importing table "table2" 2290 rows imported
    . . importing table "table3" 2387 rows imported
    . . importing table "table4" 338 rows imported
    . . importing table "table5" 433 rows imported
    . . importing table "table6" 44 rows imported
    . . importing table "tablen" 0 rows imported
    About to enable constraints...
    Import terminated successfully with warnings.


    My problem is that when I tried to query a table or "desc table" using SQLPlus, I end up with a "OBJECT table1 does not exist" error. The import says that I have imported the tables, but I can't access them.

    Does anyone know what I did wrong? How do I have to change the character set to my new database?

    You imported into SYS (not recommended).

    I imagine you did not log in as the SYS username so naturally you cannot see it's objects.

    Import into the schema you will be logging in as.

    you can lead someone to something but they will never learn anything ...

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    I see the data now.....I added "full=y" to the command and it works!
