I was told by someone that the most efficient way to extract data from certain tables, certain columns, and certain dates every 15 mins would be to use the export utility.  Is this true?  If not, is there a better way?  The database is running on a AIX platform.  Thanks in advance.

Yea thats the best way to do it.  You can also select and re-direct it to a flat file, but export would be the best option. If you are on a partition db / EEE you can try parallel export which would be faster.

Here is the command syntax, if you don't have it already

yes, export will work fine and you can use any customised sql with it.

You can also setup replication (Capture and Apply) to automate the copies.  It is quite straightforward.
