Chuck, you should always include the full Oracle database version and explicitly name the utility being used (since there are two different Oracle import utilities) as well as include the version of the Oracle cleint when the import is not done on the database server.

There is as Stefan mentioned a bug where LOB tables will not pick up the importing touser default tablespace so if the LOB table tablespace does not exist the table fails to import. I cannot remember the error message. Stefan provided the solution in this case.

You should be able to use the show=y feature to extract the table DDL, pre-create the table, and do a tables= import to bring the data.
