/u01/app/oracle/oradata/dat appears to be a directory, not a file.
If you want to copy all files contained in /u01/app/oracle/oradata/dat  you might try
scp -r /u01/app/oracle/oradata/dat/ oracle@term2:/home/oracle/Desktop/
or
scp /u01/app/oracle/oradata/dat/* oracle@term2:/home/oracle/Desktop/

if you need more help on the options for commands you can use `man <command>` eg/ `man scp` if your not sure what a command is you can use the `k` option which allows you to search the command summaries for keywords eg/ `man -k network`.
