Hi Everyone,

I'm having an issue in calling a form from another form.
I'm calling Form B from Form A with a parameter.

CALL_FORM('C:\FormB.fmx',HIDE,NO_REPLACE,NO_QUERY_ONLY,pl)
I have created one parameter in Form B which I'm passing from Form A and using the same in Form B block query.

Individually both the forms work fine. When I execute Form A in builder, after I click the Button to call FormB, FormA simply comes back into development mode from the executable mode. Formb does not opening. No error messages.

Any help on this ?

Oracle Forms 4.5? Really?
What is that from, Developer 2000?

It might not be the parameter.Can you call any form from any form? Did you actually create the .fmx file for the second form?

I used forms 4.5 in the 1990's. I don't remember much about it, like whether it was it's won product or part of Oracle Developer.

Yes it is from Developer 2000.

I created fmx by compiling formB after creation of block and layout.

I'm calling it form FormA

So, are you saying then when hitting the button, not only does it not call form B, but form A crashes out?
If so, there should be some error, log or dump file.

Could you post the whole FormA's WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger which is supposed to call FormB?
