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

To upgrade Forms 3.0 to 6i you will need to upgrade them to 4.5 first, and then to 6i since direct migration could not work.
To perform the upgrade to 4.5 you will need the Forms 4.5 software.

From the documentation:

“To upgrade a pre-4.0 form to version 4.5, type this statement at the command line, substituting the correct form of the Forms 4.5 Generate command for your environment:

f45gen32 <module_name> <username>/<password> upgrade=yes version=<version_number>”

For forms 3.0 you should use version number 30

See chapter 16 of <a href=”http://otndnld.oracle.co.jp/document/products/ds10g/904/doc_cd/web/B10469_01.pdf”>this document</a>

    Thank you for your answer How do you convert more than one forms on this command. I do have more 900 forms that need to be upgraded. How about menus

    to convert more than one form, you could type something like this at a command prompt (being at the directory where your forms reside): for %i in (*.fmb) do f45gen32 %i <username>/<password> upgrade=yes version=30 As for menus, I don't really know if they can be migrated directly.
