Last updated on NOVEMBER 22, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: and later   [Release: 9.2 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A TABLE level DIRECT export is performed with STATISTICS=COMPUTE and upon import the import fails with varying errors such as:

IMP-00003: ORACLE error 942 encountered
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist
IMP-00008: unrecognized statement in the export file:...

The error is seen immediately after all of the tables have been successfully imported, but the statistics section is being referenced.

The errors occur if the STATISTICS=COMPUTE parameter is used upon export.
