Hi Martin,

I have stored file name and path in a single column. I want to open the file while forms run time. The file opens if the name file name doesnt having space if its having space in path or in name then I cant open the file through forms

MyApplication OLE2.OBJ_TYPE;
file_name varchar2(150);
file_name := :Crq3.s_filnam;

If :Crq3.S_Extcde ='BMP'then
Appid := dde.app_begin( 'C:\Windows\System32\mspaint.exe '||file_name || '',dde.app_mode_minimized);
If the file name is C:\ss.bmp its opening
the path C;\documents and settings\ss.bmp then its try to open C:\documents.bmp

what I can do for this?

Plz help me

With Regards Umar Farook

First, my given name is 'David' and I am happy to be addressed in this forum by that name when it is spelt fully. Second, please don't PM me your questions unless I ask you to do so. If you want an answer, ask the 'forum'. I will get to EVERY thread in the 'forms' forum ultimately.

Oracle Forms can not handle directory or file names with spaces. Either don't use them or try using the 'tilda' construct, e.g. 'C:\docume~1\ss.bmp' instead of 'C:\documents and settings\ss.bmp'
