On import with traditional import (IMP), the following errors can occur when importing a TYPE that already exists:

IMP-00061: Warning: Object type "USERA"."T_VARCHAR2" already exists with a different identifier
IMP-00015: following statement failed because the object already exists:"CREATE TYPE "T_VARCHAR2" TIMESTAMP '2012-01-21:17:03:04' OID '<OID value>'...

The error occurs even though the TOID_NOVALIDATE parameter has been set i.e. TOID_NOVALIDATE=USERA.T_VARCHAR2.

On closer examination, the full CREATE TYPE statement is:

CREATE TYPE "T_VARCHAR2" TIMESTAMP '2012-01-21:17:03:04' OID '<OID value>' AS TABLE OF VARCHAR2(4000);
