Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The purpose of this document is to assist in moving an SQL Profile implemented on one database to another database.

NOTE: A SQL profile can be transported to any Oracle database created in the same release or later. The reverse may not be true as profiles are not guaranteed to be backwardly compatible.
