We recently upgraded from Forms and Reports 6i to 10g.

We've found that when our users attempt to modify a field using the built-in editor (called with Edit_TextItem) they sometimes recieve an error message.  It seems to only happen if they open the text editor on a field which already contains data, modify the data, and then close the editor.  If they cut out the data and paste it right back in before making their edits, everything works fine.

FRM-92100: Your Connection to the Server was interrupted.
This may be the result of a network error, or a failure on the Server.
You will need to reestablish you connection.

This looks like bug 338834.1 in Metalink


"If the following 2 conditions are met the forms is crashing:

1.display items have an initial value text with "carriage return" inserted into it
2.on the same form a button or a textitem is present and has the "Prompt" property set"

Solution

You can use a  work-around or upgrade to 10.1.2.2 or apply a one off patch for

 10.1.2.0.2 : Patch 4658455:

Thanks gatorvip, that sounded right except that we are upgraded to 10.1.2.2.  The weird thing is I found an old reference to the actual problem, way back on Forms and Reports 6.  
The solution on 6 was to modify the field property 'Keep Cursor Position' from a Yes to a No.  My fields (in Forms and Reports 10) were already set to No.  Out of frustration, I set them to 'Yes' just to see what would happen.  Well, what happened is it fixed the problem.  I'm not sure if Oracle changed the behavior somewhere in there and just didn't document it.  Perhaps they fixed the problem from 6 and caused it on 10.  Either way, it works now.  
Sorry it took so long to get back to this board.
