Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An Oracle Forms application has been migrated through a series of previous versions (5.0.x) to 11.1.x and all has been working fine. However, since migrating from 10.1.2.x to 11.1.x, a specific Form is failing to compile. On trying to compile the fmb within Oracle Forms Builder the following error is shown.

FRM-30085: Unable to adjust form for output.     (followed by)
PDE-PER001 (depep 2)

This error occurs as soon as anything within that FMB is touched. 

To try and correct the FMB, the following was tried to no avail.

  1. Convert the FMB to FMT  and back to FMB.
  2. Convert the FMT to XML  and back to FMB.
  3. The FMB PL/SQL is compiled internally within Forms Builder (Compile All).
