Gentlemen,

I have a data pump export file from a client but unfortunately they did no include the export log. What is the command that I can use in order to get a list of the dump file contents like the schema information etc.

Thanks.

Do an import with
show=y log=somelogfile.sql
.
This will not do a real import but will dump all contents (DDL) to somelogfile.sql

Thanks Mahesh, I was under the impression that the show=y was for the old import utility and data pump had a different command? Perhaps I am wrong.

You are right. I failed to see the "data pump" in title.

perhaps "SQLFILE Write all the SQL DDL to a specified file."

or

CONTENT=METADATA

I am having trouble using SQLFILE option, here is an example

$ impdp hr/hr DIRECTORY=dpump_dir1 DUMPFILE=expfull.dmp

SQLFILE=dpump_dir2:expfull.sql

My question is the username/password that I am suppose to specify is the username/password of the target database where I am importing, or I need to have the username/password that was used to create the data pump export file

Also regarding the DIRECTORY parameter, is that a default name or we have to specify a name where the dump file resides, I tried doing that but get an error. Any ideas guys. Thanks
