I admire people like yourself who offer their knowledge and experience
to assist others in such matters however your information should be
correct. There is no INDEXFILE option in the export utility. It only
exists in the import utility.
For this to be used, an export with the requires tables (schema) must
first be performed preferably with rows=n if doing this only for the
ddl statements. That export can then be used in the import to specify
the INDEXFILE parameter.

Thank you for your time.
