Oracle Export Advice

I'm currently running an export overnight that uses a parfile as follows:

File = /u01/cfxlive/export.dmp
Grants = Y
Constraints = Y
Userid = system/password

I want to change it to only export certain tables as it is getting too big. The tables are not owned by SYS, but by another user. Can I put the tables in the parfile to limit it, or is there another way ??

RE: Oracle Export Advice

Do you want to export single schemas or tables? If it is the single schema you want to pull then the the par file should look like this

file=<pathto .dmp file>
owner=(<schema owner>)
log=<path to .log file>

RE: Oracle Export Advice

Likewise if you want only specific tables the parameter is tables=(table1,table2,...)
