I can't make Forms 6i connect to an XE database. Is that even possible?

I'm not getting an error message; the Form bulider just closes.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is possible.

I think that is an unsupported combination, but Forms Builder 6i can certainly connect to a 10g Express Edition database.

I have tested with Dev 6i, patch 17.

You might want to review the sqlnet log file (sqlnet.log), which is probably in the “start in” folder of your Form Builder shortcut.
