I have been asked to take an app that is using Oracle Forms Version 4.5 and move to a new app server (Running windows 2000). I do not have the source for version 4.5, the oldest I was able to find was for 6i. Can I take the forms from version 4.5 and migrate to version 6i?

The old app server has been blown away, all that I have to work with is a zip file of the app folder (this contains the oracle forms that are being used). I have tried to point 6i at the older forms but will not open.

I saw the following entry in the FAQ but it does not help with the actual migration process. 'FMX files are operating system dependent. On the other hand, FMB's are not. So, you have to regenerate them when ever you change the operating system or the Forms version.'

I'm sorry but these two statements are, in my opinion, contradictory. If the oldest is 6i then why do you need to convert them from 4.5 to 6i? It has already been done.

Do you have any FMB files? What version are they, 4.5 or 6i?

As I stated elsewhere:
Search this forum for 'convert', 'conversion', and 'migrat'. Basically, use Forms 4.5 to get the forms from 3.4 to 4.5 and then use Forms 6i to get the forms from 4.5 to 6i.

There are products 'out there' that say they will do the conversion for you. Google it.

There is an 'Oracle Migration Workbench'. I have never used it.

I know of no 'free' tool.

Perform the searches I recommended and follow their directions.
