Last updated on OCTOBER 29, 2019

Applies to:

Symptoms

Export fails with:

...
About to export specified tables via Direct Path ...
EXP-00056: ORACLE error 942 encountered
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist
EXP-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully

The export is being performed across a database link from a 9.2.0.8 database and connecting to a 9.2.0.5 database. This problem is platform independent. The export works fine when both instances are 9.2.0.5.
