hi raoul
sorry for my smal english
you can use under linux or unxi the comandline with EXP or in oracle 10.x. in commandline the expdp
in all using help can you see with exp help=y oder expdp help=y

if you ar user with privileg FULL_EXPORT_DATABASE or so ... the tje user can make an export follow
exp userid=name/pasword FILE=filname-of-the-exportfile.dmp LOG=name-of-the-logfile.log USER=name-from-the-user who sould export FULL=n

please look at teh command detailed. i havent an manuell in front of me.

ist used the filedirektory where you actuell are standing. thast all
