We have a Oracle export backup created several years ago that I would dearly love to get two tables from. They seem to exist only on this backup. When the backup was created, we were on an old DEC server running Tru64 4.0F, and using Oracle 8.1.4. The machine is long gone, and we are current with Oracle with the old 8 disks thrown away.
Is there any tool or Oracle service that can be used to access that backup and extract the two files?
If you used the exp utility in 8.1.4 to create the dump file, then use the "imp" utility to import needed tables. Pl also post your current OS and database version.
