I received an oracle dmp file together with a log file which was generated using the oracle export utility.  I have been trying to import the schema and data into my oracle database using TOAD Import Utility Wizard.  I put in the path and name of the dmp file and also of the log file.  When I try to run the wizard by clicking finish - it gives me the error saying - The Oracle Import Utility executable must be specified.  I go back but there is no window which asks for the executable - neither do I know where it is.  I am running this on the system schema.  I would greatly appreciate any kind of help.  I am using oracle 11.1.

Thanks oleggold.  I tried it once, got an error, created the appropriate user and tabledefs and it worked like a charm.  It would have taken me days to figure that out as a newbie.  You saved me a lot of time.  Again, thank you very much.
