I am less than a novice on Oracle so I am sorry for such a simple post.

A client has given me dmp files of their data. I have installed Oracle 11g to import the dmp files so I can then transfer them to my systems.

I am able to log in to sqlplus etc and the IMP command works except that I am getting an error:


IMP-00003: ORACLE error 1435 encountered
ORA-01435: user does not exist
IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully

Can anyone help me with this? I can "list" the contents etc if needed.

Thank you,
