Why am I getting this error when running imp.exe?

The command...

@C:\app\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\BIN\imp.exe infodba/infodba fromuser=infodba touser=infodba file=C:\InstallSoftware\sidprodday1.dmp commit=y log=log.txt

The result....

SP2-0042: unknown command "MZÉ" - rest of line ignored.
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]

It seems the '@' symbol is causing an error...Please help me out with this. I am delivered the dump file and have used imp in previous versions of Oracle without issue.

Rerun the command but leave off the @ character -- presumably you are executing this in Windows from a CMD prompt.

SP2 looks like a sqlplus error.  As well as the '@' to execute a script file in sqlplus.

Are you trying the run imp.exe from sqlplus?

If so, it is a command line program not a sqlplus program.

Yes I am running from Windows command prompt connected to sqlplus. If I leave the @ symbol off it returns "SP2-0024: Nothing to change."

slightwv is correct. It should be run outside of sqlplus. It has been quite some time since I ran imp.exe and just thought it was sqlplus. Thank you all for your help
