    Forms 4.5? V2? Are you implementing Y2K now?

    hi

    I do not have access to metalink.Anyways, I did a google search and came to know about the "V2-style to PL/SQL Forms Converter" in the URL http://www.orafaq.com/faqfrm3.htm#UPGRADE

    They say that this package will read the SQL*Forms V3.0 tables and convert all V2-stype triggers to PL/SQL. Run it after you've upgraded from Forms V2.x or before you upgrade from Forms 3.0 to a higher release.

    In my dev environment, I have the inp files,forms 4.5/6i/9i and 8.1.6/9i database.
    I downloaded the above package and my database doesnot have any SQL*Forms table.what should I do in order to make the above converter work.I could not find any further details about the above converter.

    thanks.

    Problem Description:



    Problem Description:  
    ====================

    Are Version 2.0 (V2) style triggers supported in Oracle Forms 4.X and 5.0?


    Problem Explanation:
    ====================

    How does the Forms upgrade process handle V2 style trigger conversions? Will
    the V2 style triggers still work in Forms 4.X and 5.0, or will I have to
    rewrite the code in PL/SQL?

    Solution Description:
    =====================

    Third-party migration tools exist to convert SQL*Forms 3.0 to Oracle Forms,
    including converting V2 style triggers to PL/SQL. Sierra Atlantic and Kumaran

    tools available.

    Solution Explanation:
    =====================

    The Oracle Forms generator will not convert V2 style triggers to PL/SQL, but
    there are third party products available that have this functionality.

    See the "Oracle Open Tools Initiative" CD included with Developer/2000 for
    more information on companies involved in the Oracle Open Tools Initiative.



    V2 STYLE TRIGGERS RUN BUT ARE NOT CONVERTED TO PL/SQL


    Solution Description:
    =====================

    If you convert a form that contains Version 2.0 style triggers, they will
    still run in Developer/2000 Release 1.X and 2.0. You can view these triggers,
    but you cannot edit or modify them.

    The Oracle Forms Generator does not convert V2 style triggers into PL/SQL
    triggers. During conversion, Oracle Forms copies the text of your triggers
    verbatim. V2 style triggers remain V2 style triggers, and V3 style PL/SQL
    triggers remain PL/SQL triggers.

    If you want to edit the V2 style trigger, you must manually convert the
    trigger to PL/SQL. There is no automatic mechanism to convert the V2 style
    trigger to PL/SQL.

    Some trigger names specific to SQL*Forms 2.3 / 3.0 are changed to Oracle Forms
    nomenclature, but the TEXT of the triggers is NOT changed in any way. For
    example, an On-Validate-Field trigger would be renamed to a When-Validate-Item
    trigger, but the text of the trigger remains the same.


    Solution Explanation:
    =====================

    SQL*Forms 2.3 used Version 2.0 style triggers, and did not use PL/SQL. V2
    style trigger support is included only for backward compatibility with earlier
    versions of Forms. All V2 style triggers should be converted to PL/SQL.

    Thanks Kris for your continuous help.

    We are not planning to go for any third party tools like kumaran / sierra and so we are going to migrate the forms on our own.

    It is mentioned that v2 triggers has to be rewritten manually and cannot be converted automatically.
    Can't I use the converter i mentioned in my previous reply.

    regards
