Check that the 'shipment.fmx' is in a directory which is part of the FORMS_PATH (for MS Windows, go to registry, find FORMS90_PATH (Developer Suite 9 and 10) and add this directory if it isn't part of the path).

Hi when creating a menu with buttons linking to different forms, i get a FRM-40010: CANNOT READ FROM SHIPMENT - SHIPMENT is the file im trying to go to from the menu


i have been told that it appears that the Oracle runtime cannot find your form module (executable file SHIPMENT.FMX) in the current path. Check that the file exists in the right location (directory)...

how do i check this? can anyone help? thanks

Have you defined your Forms_Path? Search this form for 'forms_path' or 'forms90_path'.
