The reason I am staying away from impdp is because so far is imp working for us. I will start using impdp if I need feature in impdp and not in imp or if they deprecate it. I could you dbms_metadata but I am getting everything with exp and with the less coding. BTW Does anyone know if Oracle stopped packaging exp/expdp/imp/impdp with 11g client utility as I didn't see these utilities after the administration level installation...
