    hi all,

    i have a very strange problem. when i created a database with the name "hbfm" and used import/export utility it worked all fine but when i installed form developer and then again tried to use import/export utility it gave me an error:

    IMP-00058: ORACLE error 12560 ecountered
    ORA-12560: TNSrotocol adapter error
    IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully

    and the strange thing is that when i again created the database with the name "orcl" (plus form developer) it worked all fine. i tried to recreate the database with the name "hbfm" and then install form developer the problem persisted with the import/export utility.

    i reconfigured listner configuration, naming method configuration, local net service name configuration using net configuration assistant but all in vain

    please help me out of this delima if somebody can. i use:
    oracle database 10g Enterprise edition release and
    Forms [32 bit] Version

    I believe that the RDBMS software and Forms software are installed on different Oracle homes and therefore you mat need to find a way of re-setting to the environment whether you are working on forms or working on the database.

    if "oracle home" means the parent directory then let me state it that both the database softare and devsuit home directories are in the same directory "oracle".

    however can i ask, from where can i reset the environment????

    i wonder what is wrong with the database name??? why does is it work when the database name is "orcl" and not when the name is some thing else....

    hoping for your kind help,
