Query Clause in Export ( expdp )

QUERY=SCHEMA_NAME.TABLE_NAME:'"WHERE filtered_colum =>< interval_number"'



Where Clause in Export ( expdp )

If you export only specific rows, then use the Query and Where clause in expdp command.

I will export only last 30 days Customer using Membership_time column.


QUERY=SCHEMA_NAME.TABLE_NAME:'"WHERE filtered_colum =>< interval_number"'


Last 30 days’ customer can be queried bu using membership_time>sysdate-30 filter.


Add the following query option to your export code.

query=MEHMETSALIH.CUSTOMER:'"WHERE membership_time>sysdate-30"'



Export script should be as follows, it will export only last 30 days’ customers.


expdp \"/ as sysdba\" directory=DATAPUMP dumpfile=CUSTOMER%U.dmp logfile=CUSTOMER.log parallel=64 cluster=n exclude=statistics  tables=MEHMETSALIH.CUSTOMER query=MEHMETSALIH.CUSTOMER:'"WHERE membership_time>sysdate-30"'
