Oracle Forms

Hello everyone,

I'm an oracle database adminstrator and I search some information about
possibilities to create easy forms for data input (for example for test
data).

My Oracle release is now currently 9.2.0.5

Now i try use the Oracle Forms application.
I try to install the version 'Forms 6i R2' on my client PC with Windows
2000. The setup program install the software in the oracle8-home directory.

After i start the application i can't connect to a oracle 9 instance.

It is posible that a use the wrong version of Oracle Forms ??

thanks in advance

Thomas, we use Oracle Forms 6i from a UNIX developer server with a
9.2+ database so that should not be the problem. How did you
configure the Oranet (sqlnet) connection?

You might try the comp.databases.oracle.tools board if this did not
help and you have not figured out the problem.

One thing I seem to rememeber is that Oracle Form 6i is NOT dual home
capable. That said, it has to be the first Oracle product installed.
Then you can install any 9i stuff. Also, make sure you build your
tnsnames using the network config tool provided by the forms install.
