Scope

This article is intended to help users better understand how setting VERSION parameter be used.
Detailed examples with different settings of VERSION and COMPATIBLE are given that demonstrate how these parameters can affect data pump export/import.

For a detailed discussion of data pump compatibility see
<Note 553337.1> Export/Import DataPump Parameter VERSION - Compatibility of Data Pump Between Different Oracle Versions

Here are basic definitions of the VERSION parameter for both export and import.

Export

Specifies the version of database objects to be exported. The VERSION parameter simply allows you to identify the version of the objects being exported.
It also defines the dumpfile compatibility.



Import

Specifies the version of database objects to be imported. The VERSION parameter simply allows you to identify the version of the objects being imported.
It does NOT mean you can specify VERSION equal to a lower database version to import a higher level dumpfile. For example, you cannot specify VERSION=10.1 to import a dumpfile that is version 11.1.
