This document describes how to use the Oracle9i database utilities for data transfer, data maintenance, and database administration.
This document is for database administrators (DBAs), application programmers, security administrators, system operators, and other Oracle users who perform the following tasks:
■ Archive data, back up an Oracle database, or move data between Oracle databases using the Export/Import utilities
■ Load data into Oracle tables from operating system files using SQL*Loader
■ Create and maintain user-defined character sets using Oracle's globalization technology support
To use this manual, you need a working knowledge of SQL and Oracle fundamentals, information that is contained in 0raclc9i Database Concepts. In addition, SQL*Loader requires that you know how to use the file management facilities of your operating system.
