I tried to export a schema excluding some table, but expdp exit with this error:

ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39071: Value for EXCLUDE is badly formed.
ORA-00936: missing expression

The command that I use is:

expdp system/password@ORADB directory=EXPORT_ORA_DIR schemas=maxdb logfile=maxdb.log 
dumpfile=maxdb.dump EXCLUDE=TABLE:"IN ('max_table_1','max_table_2')";

Where I made a mistake?

>Where I made a mistake?
trying to do it in single command line
place all command line arguments except username/password inside control file;
so results are not impacted by OS command line parsing

..and (which has nothing to do with the current error) give the name of the excluded tables in UPPER case.
