    QUESTION:

     
       Getting Oracle Error ORA-00905 using special characters in the directory or file name. For example export failing when using '-' in export file name.  


    ANSWER:

     

    Oracle does not allow - in the directory name. If using - in export profile name export fails.

      

    Please use normal characters only. Oracle allows only '_' and '#' if you would like to make you profile name more feasible.
