ORACLE

Good Day,

I have two forms, called form1 and form2.
Form1 contains a button, which has a trigger (when-button-pressed), this trigger contains the following code: OPEN_FORM('form2');

When I run form1 and click the button the following error appears: FRM-400010: Cannot read from Form2.

Both of these forms are on the same directory in the same folder. I have checked that the form name is correct.

Help,
Mary.

Strange!

Try this out:
Specify the entire path in Open_Form, for example:

OPEN_FORM('C:\MyFiles\Form2.fmx');

If this works, your path setting is not correct.

Do you have a compiled copy of the form in that directory? And this directory should be in the path, unless you are mentioning the complete path to open the form.

*********From Forms Help *********

FRM-40010:  Cannot read form %s.

Cause:     One of the following:

1. You entered a nonexistent form name.

2. You typed an incomplete path.

3. You do not have the proper privileges to run the form.

4. You do not have a compiled copy of the form.

Action:     Retype the form name correctly, provide the proper path name, compile the form, or contact the DBA.

Will the compiled copy have the extension .fmx if so I can see the form1.fmx and form2.fmx in the same directory and same folder as form1.fmb and form2.fmb

What do you mean this directory should be in the path. What path?

directory should have been specified in windows registry in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE
FORMS60_PATH (if you are using Forms6.0).
