Logon as oracle user. In many cases it is the user "oracle"
This user has to have in his PATH envirinment variable path to $Oracle_home\bin directory where Import (imp) and Export (exp) utilities resides.

Run it so:
% exp
% imp

where % is the Unix prompt.

2)  I want tables which are having value 1238.50, no matter fielad name is same or not.

Thanks in anticipation.
