    dbimport -? should give you a brief syntax help on dbimport on screen.

    Anyway, if you want to change the name of the database you are importing, you also need to rename the .exp directory and the .sql below this directory to the new database name you wish to use.

    Then: dbimport newdatabasename -i directory_above_.exp
