which environment are you in? Windows, Unix, etc.  For Windows, our FORMS_PATH is set in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE/<your oracle home>.  It is also noted in the DEFAULT.ENV file located in your <your oracle home>\forms\server directory.  In Unix (in my experience), FORMS_PATH is an environmental variable.

We are running Windows 2003.


So you are saying that i can modify the DEFAULT.ENV file and put the FORMS_PATH in there?

I went in usign Regedit, but I dont see any mention of FORMS_PATH. I checked all the folders under the ORACLE folder.

I think I had to create the entry, but that was 4 years ago.
