E-Business Suite R12 - Issue When Compiling APPS 12.1.3 Form Using 11g Form Builder (Doc ID 2307307.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Application Object Library - Version 12.1.3 to 12.2.7 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have upgraded from 11i to 12.1.3 Apps version. We had some custom forms in 11i which were developed using 6i Form Builder. To make these forms R12 compatible, we have installed 11g Forms Builder(Forms [64 Bit] Version (Production)) and made the changes to them.

But when we put the modified form in server and compile we get below error:

"Forms 10.1 (Form Compiler) Version (Production)

Forms 10.1 (Form Compiler): Release - Production

Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options
PL/SQL Version (Production)
Oracle Procedure Builder V10. - Production
Oracle Virtual Graphics System Version (Production)
Oracle Multimedia Version (Production)
Oracle Tools Integration Version (Production)
Oracle Tools Common Area Version
Oracle CORE Production

FRM-10043: Cannot open file."

We noticed in EBS server, Forms 10.1 compiler has been installed and hence forms which were saved using 11g Form Builder is not getting compiled.

Please let us know if the Form Compiler version can be updated to compile 11g forms. If upgraded, will there be any impact?
