    Hi,

    If you want to open another application from Oracle forms you can use DDE.App_Begin function. The function will open the application with the parameters passed. To open a word document, use the function as
    app_id := DDE.App_Begin('C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\WINWORD.EXE C:\test_doc.doc',DDE.APP_MODE_NORMAL);
    where 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\WINWORD.EXE' is the location where MS Word is installed and "C:\test_doc.doc" is the name of the file to be opened. The second parameter "DDE.APP_MODE_NORMAL" specifies the initial window mode. Similarly you can open an Excel file also
