Welcome to the community!

Please show us a screenshot of how/where you ran the command
You may be already at mongo prompt
You should run mongodump at os prompt like #,$
Sometimes fancy quotes also cause issues

Thank you for your response. First I have set the connection then, then I tried to export the data as per tutorials.
I don’t know where I am wrong, Please help me to fix it.

Please exit mongo prompt and run the command at your os prompt(ruchimanu$)

Thanks Ramachandra, Now I am able to export the data, but next command is not working again. How I will come to know, step by step whether I have to run commands at os prompt or mongo prompt. Please help me

Hi @Ruchi_Sharma
M001 is not command.

cd is command.

Please remove prefix M001 and try.

  1. M001 is my project name. I was thinking to store the data to M001 folder.
  2. Now I am able to get into dump folder, but unable to run other commands. How to access .bson and .json file from sample supplies that is under dump folder?

Hi @Ruchi_Sharma, you don’t have to put the folder name at the beginning of the command, just simple “ls” would do the job.

Thanks. Regards.
