Hi folks,
has anybody tried out to start a c-program to be run on OAS so that starting is done from forms ?
I should start a prog which reads DB and writes results to a file located in specific directory in OAS, well , but prog only starts, pops up in server task list but does not write or anything.... (executed with win_api.winexec('xxxx', sw_showminnoactive,false))
So any gurus out there ????? ;)

The easiest way to write to a file using Oracle Forms is to use the builit-in TEXT_IO package. Alternatively, if you're happy to write the file to your database server, you can use the server-side UTL_FILE package.

You should note that the win_api functions supplied in the d2kwutil library do not work with Web Forms. This is because Web Forms is Java-focused, and avoids the use of any operating-system dependent functionality (at least, that's what Oracle will tell you!).
