You should always answer Yes.

This mean that when the library is attached to your form it will not contain the path from where it was attach. When it will be used it will look in your forms path to find the library.

If you answer No, it will always look in the specific path from where it was at the beginning

hope it help

I am always using file when attaching library, but from what i know it is possible to save your library in the database in some specific table that you must create so form builder can store it there.

not sure about the Either option, since it seem to do the same thing as file.

The 'Database' and 'Either' options don`t seem to be available in 10g, so i don`t recommend using it.

I just have a question. In my case I'm always moving around from one computer to another (The application resides within a Version-Control Repository). Should I answer Yes?

Well, if the directory of your library is in your forms_path in the registry you should answer yes to allow greater portability.

Here is an exemple:
What will happen if the location of your version control repository change for X reason?

If you answer No you will have to modify all form that include the library to change the path of the PLL. If you only have 1 forms it`s not that bad, but if you have 100 it can take some time. But if you answer Yes, only thing you will have to do is change the forms_path in your registry to add the new location of your repository and all the form will continu working.

All right:
thanks a lot, you are right I'm going to click yes from now on so as to have greater portability and in case I have to change the path of a bunch of Forms.

Regards!
