Second step in the process is to export the tablespace. This screen shows the syntax of the command you will use and the actual export command used in our example. You create a parameter file that contains all the details needed to export the file. The green highlighted area show optional parameters that can save exporting time if used with the 'n' option. For example, if you know that there are no grants you wish to export, specify GRANTS =n and the export process will skip this portion of its routine.
