An easy one for many oracle developers, but how do I find out what command line options I can use to load an Oracle Form? Which help file is it? i.e. I want to parse a Username and Database alias to the Runtime.

The anwer to your immediate question is:
"f45run module=<path\module_name> userid=<username>/<password>@<connect_string>

where:
<path> = directoy where you Forms runtime module exists
<module_name> = name of the Forms runtime module
<username> = database user name
<password> = her/his password
<connect string> = SQL*Net database alias

The complete list of command line parameters for Forms Runtime (and for Forms Designer, for that matter) can be found in the "Forms Reference Manual", Chapter 1-3 "Starting Oracle Forms Components".

The "Forms Reference Manual" is located in the menu structure created by the Oracle Installer. Look for "Developer 2000 Doc for NT" (NT in my case, see below) and there for the "Forms Reference Manual".

(I am using Designer/2000 1.3.2 under NT 4.0)

Thanks. Is there any way though that I can parse just the database alias leaving the user the dialog box to enter the user name and password. What I have tried is:

F45RUN32.EXE Y2K2_5_5.fmx /@Y2K
F45RUN32.EXE Y2K2_5_5.fmx @Y2K
F45RUN32.EXE Y2K2_5_5.fmx Y2K
F45RUN32.EXE Y2K2_5_5.fmx /Y2K

Thanks
