    The fmb file is a binary file. It maintains an internal data structure. Each time an object or item is added or deleted from a Form, the data structure is modified. In some instances, the data structure may be corrupt and the user may experience multiple GPF's in Forms.

    The fmt file is an ascii text file. This file contains the minimal information about a Form and should not be modified. The objects in the Form are described in this file. This file does not maintain an internal data structure, and it is strictly used for source control.

    When you convert the fmb file to an fmt file, the compiled PL/SQL code and data structure are stripped from the file.

    When you convert the fmt file back to an fmb file, the data structure is recreated. In some instances, this corrects the GPF's that were occurring in a Form.
