Here is a tricky one. Oracle version 7.3.4 How to import tabels without the data and the initial extent information. I don't want huge tables with no data. Iwant small ones with no data. I think I have tried every possible option on the import and export command. I have managed to get huge tables without data. But how to shrink'em. If it's not possible with the imp/exp utility do you know some workaround. Please, help. regards //Joachim ----------- Reply ---------------- Joachim, There are a few things you can do for your imp/exp question. First, you can export with COMPRESS=N. By default, COMPRESS=Y, which takes all of your tables add combines all extents into one big extent. However, your imported tables will still be the size of each INITIAL extent from when it was exported. So, if your original INITIAL extent sizes are too big for the empty tables, you will have to go outside of export/import. The easiest way is to use a third-party tool such as Platinum's TSREORG. You can change the INITIAL/NEXT pretty much on the fly. If you do not have a third-party tool for this, then you will have to drop and recreate each table with smaller extents. This is a pain because you also have to recreate indexes, triggers, constraints, comments, and grants, as well as recompiling procedures/packages. You can either reverse-engineer the CREATE statements with an ER tool. The other way to do it is "IMP username/password SHOW=Y LOG=create_all.sql", which will generate all CREATE statements into the "create_all.sql" file. The only problem is that Oracle cuts lines in half and adds quotation marks, etc. You will then also have to modify the INITIAL extent of each CREATE statement to the size you desire. The advantage of using IMP to do this is that it also generates the GRANTs and constraints. I've done it before and it's work, but it does the job. Best of luck, -Ari Kaplan email@example.com www.arikaplan.com for example by sikathabis exp dbadmin/dbadmin@DB10g owner=dbadmin rows=N compress=N file=e:\norows_DB10g.dmp and then import like this imp dbadmin/dbadmin@DB10g fromuser=dbadmin touser=dbadmin ignore=y statistics=none file=norows_DB10g.dmp
