Web.Show_Document Restrictions:

Can only be used from within a form run from the Web.

I think what he meant when he said describe the environment was:

how will the form be used? Client/Server environment? WebForms (through the Application Suite?), etc.

HTH,
Steve

Go to http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/forms.html. Find 'Guidelines for Building Applications'. Download it and search for 'ora_ffi'.

You need to get your browser to 'start' as an external application.

Please describe where you wish to have the hyperlink. In a form, at the command line, in a Java prompt, as text in an email, etc.

There are no disadvantages to web.show_document, only advantages.

Review the root directory of the 10g Forms and Reports installation CDs. There will be PDF documents describing various bits and pieces. Read them. Also look in the 'doc' directory for further material.
