Hi,

Show us the exact syntax of your import command. Also, check the location of your dump file and perform an import of this file having its location as your present working directory (make sure the database is open!)
Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

cd to the directory where the core file is, and run "file core"; you can also run "strings core" but be aware that this will return every text string in the file, so you may see error messages that don't really apply because they happened to have been load in memory as a part of the binary that was running at the time the process crash occured.
