ORA-39001, ORA-39000 and ORA-39142

I exported 3 large tables from an Oracle 11.2.0.4.0 database then tried to import them into an Oracle 11.1.0.6.0 database but the impdp failed as follows:

PQECOG3 /database/DB_exports/andrew > impdp / parfile=params

ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39000: bad dump file specification
ORA-39142: incompatible version number 3.1 in dump file "/database/DB_exports/andrew/andrew.dmp"
 
PQECOG3 /database/DB_exports/andrew >

You get these errors when you try to import a dump file produced by a newer version of Oracle. I added the version parameter at the end of the expdp parameter file. Incidentally, in case it isn't obvious, I have called both my parameter files params. However, they are on different servers and contain different parameters:

GBDMVDP1 /cisdpt/gbdmvdp1/datapump > cat params
content=all
directory=datapump
dumpfile=andrew.dmp
logfile=andrew.log
schemas=dmv
include=table:"in('S0141_BPD','D296_1234','D81_894')"
version=11.1.0.6.0
GBDMVDP1 /cisdpt/gbdmvdp1/datapump >

Then I reran the expdp and this produced a dumpfile which would be suitable for an Oracle 11.1.0.6.0 database. When I tried the impdp again, it worked:

PQECOG3 /database/DB_exports/andrew > impdp / parfile=params
