FRM-40039: Cannot attach library %s while opening form %s.

Now I've read the action to take:

Cause:      The given library is attached to the form but cannot be located in the search path for PL/SQL libraries.

Action:      Make sure that the given library can be found and that it has read permissions set.

But where would this search path be located?

Here's my environment:

PC: HP/Compaq
O/S: Windows XP Pro (Service Pack 2)
Oracle Forms: Version 9.0.2.7.0
Oracle Database: 8.1.7.4.0

Thanks,
Gio

    I figured out how to get rid of the error but it involves leaving the non-portable path/directory structure in there.  I'd still like to know where I find the path for the PL/SQL Libraries.

    Either you leave the non-portable path while attaching the library or you do not attach it and mention the path in the Windows Registry in the Hkey--Local Machine--Software--Oracle registry.  I think it should be in the forms path key.

    Thought you may find this interesting. It is listed in the Oracle Forms documentation on Attaching a library to a module

    Tip:  You should not specify a library path when attaching libraries.  Path names for library attachments are stored internally and, as a result, are not portable.  Instead, you should specify the name of the library and rely on the Form Builder' standard search path to locate your library at runtime.

    When searching for attached libraries at runtime,  Form Builder first searches the current directory and then the directories listed in the PATH (FORMSxx_PATH and ORACLE_PATH) environment variables.

    Note:  If you specify a library path, Form Builder prompts you to confirm the specified path.  

    If you confirm, at runtime, Form Builder will search for your library based strictly on the specified path; Form Builder will not search the specified path and then perform the standard search, as well.  

    If you do not confirm, Form Builder removes the path and saves the library name.  At runtime, Form Builder searches the standard search path to locate your library.

    Well I have my library in the directory of where the FMX is executed via the browser (both the PLL, and PLX).  So when you say Form Builder searches the current directory are you saying it searches the directory where the Forms Runtime/WebRuntime executable exists? (i.e. forms\bin)  or the current directory of where the fmx file is located (which can be anywhere the user has the fmx files)?

    Thanks,

    Just updated the FORMS90_PATH registry variable and it worked great "sapnam".
