I got this error while importing dump file:

ORA-39358: Export dump file version not compatible with target version .


First we check the compatible parameter of both source and target database.

We can see the source compatible parameter is higher version( and target is lower(

A dump file generated from database with higher compatible parameter can’t be imported to a database with lower compatible value.

Either both should be same or target db compatible can be higher than the source compatible.

To fix it, While taking export use VERSION=11.2 parameter .
