Default: expdat.dmp

Specifies the names of the export files to import. The default extension is .dmp. Because Export supports multiple export files (see the following description of the FILESIZE parameter), you may need to specify multiple file names to be imported. For example:

imp scott IGNORE=y FILE = dat1.dmp, dat2.dmp, dat3.dmp FILESIZE=2048

You need not be the user who exported the export files; however, you must have read access to the files. If you were not the exporter of the export files, then you must also have the IMP_FULL_DATABASE role granted to you.
