I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.

Tablespaces don't have a 'path'.

Tablespaces have one or more datafiles associated with them and the datafiles have a 'path' on the OS but you cannot specify which datafile the data goes into.

Tablespaces are database objects.  You just need to know the from and to tablespace.  You don't need to care about the data file when it comes to data in the tablespace.

The information that the import process is looking for is the tablespace name, not the data file path.  I'm pretty sure that if you gave it the path name of a data file it would give you an error.

However, if you want to know what file(s) are within a tablespace, this should work:

select filename
from dba_data_files
where tablespace_name = 'TBS1';

Replace TBS1 with the name of your tablespace.

The only reason I asked this is because the oem asks during import(re-map table space). Please see attached screenshot.

I tried your command and it gave me the path of datafile for the destination tablespace. what about the path of the datafile for source tablespace? Thanks.

It is not asking for the path.  It is asking for the tablespace name.  A tablespace can have many datafiles.

Here is the documentation for that parameter -> https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e22490/dp_import.htm#SUTIL929

Notice the example, it shows tablespace names, not data files.

Ok, so if both source and destination tablespace is MAX. Just put MAX in the box?
Thanks.

If the tablespace name is the same, you should be able to leave both boxes empty.
