When we give the command 'NOTEPAD TEST.TXT' in the dos command prompt, it would open a Notepad with the text file. When I try executing the same from Oracle forms using a host function, it does open a notepad. But the execution is so fast that it opens it,closes it and the ctl comes back to the forms runtime immediately. But I want the notepad to be left open. Is there any way to achieve it.

Your suggestions are welcome.
