The connect string u are using trying connect during export/toad is not find in ur tnsnames.ora. Hopefully you are using different (or probably not using any of) connect string while connecting from sqlplus/oem,so u r getting connected. Please do check ur tnsnames.ora file.

This problem generally happenes when toad uses different oracle home what sqlplus uses.

You can set oracle home for TOAD as below:

1) Open Toad
2) You will see In Toad Server login window
3) Check Use Toad Home
4) press SQL* NET help
5) Select Home from Tree View in which your Service entry is there. (Generally if you install new oracle product toad default uses latest version of oracle home but in that the service name will not be there)
6)and now try to login.

Do you use a connect string for SQL*Plus or OEM?  If so, what is it?  Do you run all of these programs on the same machine, or do you run some of them on the server and some on a client?  Do you have multiple Oracle_homes?  If so, SQL*Net may be configured differntly in one of them than in the other(s).

to configure sql* Net for toad follow the steps what i mentioned before.

else copy the tnsnames.ora file from old oracle home to new oracle personal database home

generally u will fine tnsnames.ora file in $ORACLE_HOME\network\admin or $ORACLE_HOME\net80\admin

Is your Oracle client in a different Oracle_home than your Personal Oracle database?

You said that you are "ok with connection with database", but which database: Personal Oracle, or another Oracle database on a server?

You said that you can also "connect to client using sql and oem".  This puzzles me.  SQL*Plus and OEM are clients that connect to a database.  They don't connect to a client, they are the client.  Which database do they connect to: Personal Oracle, or another Oracle database on a server?

hi my friend

do this and ur problem will be solved.

just copy the tnsnames.ora from ur database oracle home and put it in the client oracle home path.

sqlplus uses the DB oracle home path and toad uses the last installed oracle home path which is ur client.

so copy the tnsnames.ora file from DB path DB_oracle_home/network/admin/tnsnames.ora

and paste in the client path

client_oracle_home/network/admin/tnsnames.ora

that will solve ur problem.

regards
