Hi,

I am using following exp and later imp commands to load the entire schema/user including data, structure, triggers, sequences etc between two database schemas within same oracle database machine using dump file.

exp schema_user1/password indexes=n full=y file=dump_file1.dmp

imp schema_user2/password full=y file=dump_file1.dmp ignore=y

After importing If I would like to drop triggers, sequences alone and leave rest of the objects, data intact is that is possible. If the data , other objects still out there if I drop sequences, triggers will it cause any errors. My intention is to run new set of sequences, triggers ( due to some change in approach of using oracle built in sequences instead of using external custom table 'sequence'). Please advise. Any ideas, sample code, resources, links highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

you can, of course, after the IMP, run some sql to drop triggers and sequences,,,
but that is not a "exp/imp" issue as such.

I would probably create a procedure/sql script, that loops on all the triggers/sequences for a given user (owner), which then dynamically runs the DROP SEQUENCE / TRIGGER (using EXECUTE IMMEDIATE ' DROP .... ' )

Be careful, I think there wil be a problem after dropping sequences if the sequences are referenced in some application code or may be in triggers also.
If you feel that the sequences are not referenced any where in the application code or triggers code then of course you can drop them after import.

You can export with TRIGGERS=N, then run dynamic SQL to drop the sequences after the import.
