How the REPLACE Option Works During an Import When There is a Foreign Key on the Imported Parent Table
Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2014
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When a table is truncated, it complains a FK in child table exists and the truncate is aborted.
However, it succeeds doing an impdp with table_exists_action = "REPLACE" without any constraints error.
According to the documentation, IMPDP with replace option drops and recreates the table.
So how does "impdp with replace" work?
