Who created that form? Where? Was it you, on your computer? Or was it someone else, on another computer? If the latter, how did you get the FMB file? Was it FTP-ed to your PC? If so, did you use BINARY mode? If not, you should have.

If I'm on a wrong path, provide as many information as possible; someone might get another idea.

Because, I'd expect difficulties if you tried to open a form created with Forms 10g in Forms Builder 6i (for example), but not succeeding to open a form created with Forms Developer 10g in another Forms Developer 10g, well, that's strange.

Example - You can not open Form in 6i form Builder which built in 10g form Builder (Higher Version to Lower Version).

I "think" but do not guarantee, based on my memory, that 6i will actually "open" the form, but it will be completely blank. Again, this is far back in the depths of my memory, but I do recall something like that.

Without more info though, maybe the OP is trying to open a completely corrupt file such that no version of forms can open or one of Littlefoot's points.

Other questions to ask would be, can anyone else open this .fmb file? Maybe upload it here and someone who is daring can try.

Hi,

Have you tried opening forms and using File->Open to open the form?

I have the same problem but only when I double-click to open the file. Curious case really, but when I use File->Open it works.

Cheers,
Shawn
