I need to get some examples of using win_api_utility.move_file procedure or
win_api_utility.copy_files

Thanks for any help

It is pretty straightforward isn't it: Win_Api_Utility.Move_File(Oldfilename, NewFilename, RaisExceptions);

You give the filename to move (OldFileName), the destionation file name (NewFileName) and you indicate whether a NO_DATA_FOUND should be raised when the file is not found.

Win_Api_Utility('C:Tempmyfile.txt','D:somedirsomefilename.txt', TRUE);

This command will move the file and raise errors if the file isn't found. Check your Forms Documentation if not clear.

Yes, it seems easy to do.But for some reason I am getting an error: "Identifier 'Win_api_utility.Move_file' must be declared". What am I doing wrong? :-(

Aha, that's a classic. You need to attach a specific library for that, it is called D2KWUTIL.PLL.

In Forms6 it can be found in the directory %ORACLE_HOME%TOOLSDEVDEM60DEMOFORMS

In Forms6i it is not installed by default. You can download it from http://otn.oracle.com/software/products/forms/content.html, or you can find it on your installation CD under Extraffigen (didn't verify this second one myself, but the download is there on OTN).

Thank you so much!!!!
I downloaded d2kwutil.pll with example. Demo works fine! I am impressed!
But I still have an issue with my form.(I feel silly..) I copied d2kwutil.pll into my Oracle_homebin directory, but still having the same error message. :-(

you have to ATTACH it in Forms itself. It is a PLL, not a DLL.
1. Open your FMB
2. Go to the object navigator.
3. Select the node 'Attached libraries' and click on the green '+' sign on the left.
4. You'll get a Dialog that asks where to look for the library.
5. Browse your filesystem to the correct location of the PLL, and attach it.

Should be ok. We'll do it all the time (in Forms6 and 6i).

Good luck,
MHE

you need to attach a library called "D2kwutil" in order for you not to have the must declare message.

Please define "still not working". Do you get compilation errors? Runtime errors? Blank screen? Not exactly what you expected, but you do see some difference?
Did you follow Maaher's steps one by one?
Does it not work in your development env or only not in a different env?
