Generating form from Designer I got the fallowing error:
CGEN-01377 ERROR: Module: Failed to write form(Form name)
Module: Form Builder binary file for (Form name) has not been created.
I'm using Designer6.0 and Oracle 8i.

I have changed all form generator options and point location to Local Database and specify Connect String.

What should I do to be able to generate form into Local Database or Other Database?

Thank you.

Normally this message comes with some other ORA/FRM message.
When the FMB is created, try opening it with Developer and try building the fmx; it gives some more information.

Also, check the generator options.
Are all destinations correct?
Are all connect strings correct?
Does the RUN>Path point to the directory where your template is?

I haven't tried to generate a form from Designer recently.  With Forms Developer this is a common error and is caused by a Forms runtime session on the same machine running the *.fmx that I am attempting to regenerate.  The solution is to close the runtime session, then regenerate.

Where (what directory) are you attempting to generate the form to?  Does the *.fmx already exist?  Is it possible that someone is currently running the previous version from that directory?

I use to generate form without compiling it. I compile form
in Developer.
Please update and finalize this old question.

Experts, please provide closing recommendations if this is not closed by the end of this week.
