Is there a difference between compiling a form through the developer client on my windows machine and compiling it on a unix server. I compiled it on my windows developer client and ftp'd it to the unix server and when I try and run it through EBS, it says it is not a valid forms runtime file.

Oracle Forms 6i

Did you change to binary when ftp?
By default, is ASCII.

    Hi, Forms executable files are platform specific. So you can open your fmb file on your Windows Developer suite client and compile to just check errors on your code. However to make it work on your UNIX forms server. You need to, 1. ftp the fmb file in ascii mode to your unix server 2. Use f60gen to generate fmx on your unix box
