Can anybody tell me how to open the windows open file dialog box through a FORMS9I button.
In the when-button-pressed trigger of the forms9i form i have coded
declare
s varchar2(100);
begin
s:=get_file_name();
end;

But when i am pressing the button no error is showing and not also the windows open dialog box is opening.
I actualy want to create an application in 9i forms such that when a user clicks a button a file is copied to another folder.
just the way we upload a file.
Pls help..........

hi,

i don't have much idea about get_file_name.
but, you can use WEBUTIL_FILE.FILE_OPEN_DIALOG to select a file.

i think webutil works with 9i.
you might not have configured webutil properly.

is any other webutil function working?
