I have two Oracle 9i Databases (A,B). There is a DAtabase Link from A to B. When a client using Form6i, connected to A, attemp to access B table with a Database link, get the message FRM-40507. This problem didn't exist when A database was 8i. When I use a 9i client, I have no problem.

Can anybody help me?

Please try the following:

1. Connect using SQL*Plus to A and try to access the table in B (e.g. do a SELECT * FROM mytable@B_LINK).

2. In Forms, when FRM-40507 appears, invoke Help menu->"Display Error" and report any messages it shows.

Let us know what happens.

Thanks jesules

"ORA-03120 two-task conversion routine: integer overflow
Cause: An integer value in an internal Oracle structure overflowed when being sent or received over a heterogeneous connection. This can happen when an invalid buffer length or too great a row count is specified. It usually indicates a bug in the user application.
Action: Check parameters to Oracle calls. If the problem recurs, reduce all integer parameters, column values not included, to less than 32767."

I haven't come across this before. You could try the suggestions above if you haven't already, otherwise it may be a bug in 9i - I suggest that you post this on Metalink (http://www.oracle.com/support/metalink/).

Sorry I couldn't help.
