recovering truncated table from db back up

A table was accidentaly truncated. The data in that table is kind of snapshot and even if we re-run the program that populated the table we will not able to reconcile it to the data the table previously contained before truncating.

Is there a way to recover this data from db backups (level 0 or level 1)

you might be lucky and have flashback configured and running, so you might not need to "restore" anything, just "flashback" the table:

otherwise, you will need to restore the database fully from backup (eventually to another host or instance), export the data from there, and import to your table.

don't you have a standby running ?
activate that and copy the data via a db-link

Its a Data Warehouse db and we do not have a standby

Flashback is enabled and configured but since it was truncated almost 4 weeks it cannot be recovered.
we do not have a strong case to go alternate route of recovering from full db back up..

Thanks for your responses..
