    Sorry to hear this.

    Do you think we (TINW) are mind readers?
    No OS or version mentioned.
    No specific version of Oracle DB or Tools (out to 3 or 4 decimal places).
    NO ERROR code or messages provided.

    Simply (re)compile the 6i source files with the 9i compiler;
    and make sure the results end up in a different directory that
    the 6i compiles.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Thanks.....I am sorry that I haven't given you the entire picture of the problem. I have created few forms using forms 6i and saved into my database (Oracle 8i). My operating system is Windows 2000. I am thinking of upgrading my Oracle from 8i to 9i. Now my questions is , how to migrate these forms from my existing database(oracle 8i) to the new database(oracle 9i).I didn't quite understand what u meant by 9i compiler. It would be great if you could help me with this.

    Thanks.....

    OK, I'm willing to learn.
    EXACTLY how do/did you "save" your 6i forms into your 8i DB?
    My forms simply reside as files in an OS (filesystem) directory.

    Exactly how is "form data" different from non-form data?
    Exactly what have you done?
    What actual error messages & code appear during your "troubles"?

    I haven't done the migration yet...what I am asking is a way to do it.

    thanks....
