Where is the Excel file (test.xls)?  Is it on the application server or on a client machine?  Since Oracle Forms10 runs as web-enabled application only (and not as a client/server app as earlier versions of Forms did) I'm not sure that Forms10 can use files that exist on a client PC.  It may be limited to working with files that are on the application server.

THanks for Reply

The File is in Application Server, any other method to call exce file from Forms

OK, that looks about right to me then.  I've never used the DDE package though in Oracle Forms to open an Excel or Word file.  That always looked to me like more trouble (and more possibilities for problems) than what it might be worth.
