Please, help me!

My device iz DPI605R for purpose of  pressure measuring.
Thank you,

I guess uou can use a OCX MSCOMMCONTROL in your forms.

I had this job done using a vb communication compenent and calling it as a executable in oracle forms. This used to write data in a file, which oracle forms used to read, display and store.

You can refer more on mscomm ocx (mscomm32.ocx). This is very easy to develop in VB. Make a executable and call it in forms.

This is topic that comes up repeatedly, search and you will find an answer. Here is one thread of many with some solutions:

And, to do the moderator bit:

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and PLEASE read How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read
I particuar, please avoid using IM-speak. Using phrases such as " i m writing u " are considered impolite on a professional forum where many members do not have English as a first language.
