RE: export fails with invalid column name

Are you saying the table you are importing to has a different column name/datatype?

If so, I would add the old column to the table, import it, then create the new column and use an update statement to move the data over. Then drop the old column.

If the table isn't huge, you can load it into a difference schema, then use ctas syntax to move it over to a new table.

Watch out for references though.
