Hi

2. Is there anything we are missing will export and import of database?

Point them to a valid table

2. Is there anything we are missing will export and import of database?

The tables those synonyms were once pointing to.

As SYS / SYSDBA from the db server (not a client) do this routine cleanup of invalid objects:  sqlplus >  @?\rdbms\admin\utlrp.sql .   Read the code header for its description.  FWIW I use this in a database startup trigger to help minimize any surprises to the users.

Also, forgot to mention that Oracle 10+ will place synonyms  in an invalid stage if their underlying objects (eg. a stored procedure gets recreated) get recreated or dropped.

paquicubaCommented:
So, if you're positive that the underlying object exists and are in a valid stage, then all you need to do is call the synonym and Oracle will do the rest (synonyms will be placed in a VALID stage again)

this command returns very nice results:
SELECT 'CREATE SYNONYM '||owner||'.'||synonym_name||
        ' FOR '||DECODE(db_link,NULL,table_owner||'.')||table_name||DECODE(db_link,NULL,';','@'||db_link||';')
FROM   dba_synonyms
just add
WHERE  owner='&owner'
for Your user

oh,of course You can run the script above in the export database,create the spool there and run the actual creation in new

paquicubaCommented:
run this query (replace <synonym name> with the actual name) :

Select Table_owner, Table_name, Db_link
From Dba_synonyms  
Where Owner = 'PUBLIC'
And Synonym_name = Upper('<synonym name>')
