Convert it to a FMT and that FMT back to FMB. That might help. No guarantees though...

If using Forms 6 or 6i then open the FMB, do a Ctrl-Shft-K (Compile All), then save and close the form. This trick only works at the initial opening, generating the form (Ctrl-T) causes the FMB to be 'fluffed up'.

In our environment (oracle 5 and 6i), just compile then disconnect before saving.

guys,
some one told me following solution. It works well and the size of the form reduces by some 500KB, that's a big thing. But I could not find the the reason though.
The solution is to replace all the occurances of ; with ; in pl/sql through edit menu & then select Find and replace pl/sql (making no effect but do note the size before and after this).
I have windows environment.
It did worked but no explanation yet.

this my problem n1, i can't find a logical explanation, i work the form and when i press CTRL+T (to generate .fmx), the application disappears, so got o the menu program, the find an replace and i replace " "(space) by " " (space) and it works, someone told me that ther's a batch that i must execute but it didn't solve my problem, i can't find any explanation yet, if anyone have ideas thanks for helping me. this really a disturbing problem, hhhheeelllppp plaeeeeeeeeeese.
