I had a similar problem with export with my 9i databases. I installed the base software, then did the patches to current release (this was i think). then created my database from scripts. I then got problems with my exports. Opened a tar with oracle, they said I had to startup migrate, then run catpatch.sql. Seemed like alot of hooey to me. But I did it and the problem went away and now I'll probably end up creating databases this way until I die.

Yes, I am already looking on google and metalink.

but generally you need to run catpatch.sql when you upgrade yr DB, I mean apply the patch.

but here we havent applied any patch. I run the catalog.sql, but same error for export.

so now going to run catpatch.sql.

||we hanvent upgraded out DB

I think you answered you own question.
Safe maybe, maybe not...logical no.

||"for parameter NAME in function SET_TRANSFORM_PARAM"

This seems looked more into this info?
