I am trying to export selected rowS from my database using SUBQUERY but I got error.

expdp directory=exp_data dumpfile=selected_row.dmp logfile=rows.log tables=sample,super query="where name IN (select name from azeem.sample where name like 'Ten');"

Can we use subquery in datapump?

    Depending on the Operating System it's possible that you need to escape the quotes. A more robust solution is to use a parameter file as in @JSapkota's answer. – Marco Baldelli Mar 21 '16 at 13:40

Can we use subquery in datapump?

Yes we can. The following example shows how to do it.

I have created a parameter file to get this job done. In my test case I have two tables namely tbl1 and tbl2 under HR schema. You may change the name of the schema as your requirements.

[oracle@testsrv Desktop]$ cat query.par
Directory=user_dir
DUMPFILE=select_row.dmp
logfile=rows.log
tables=hr.tbl1, hr.tbl2
Query=hr.tbl1:"where name IN (select name from hr.tbl2 where name like '%T%')"

Then I have used the following expdp command to accomplish the task.

[oracle@testsrv Desktop]$ expdp system/oracle parfile=query.par
