          - Login to the application
          - Navigate to Help > About Oracle Applications

          Check "Oracle Forms Version" and use the following note to know the corresponding Developer 6i Patchset.

          Note: 125767.1 - Upgrading Developer 6i with Oracle Applications 11i
          https://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/ml2_documents.showDocument?p_database_id=NOT&p_id=125767.1

          Note: 232313.1 - Information on Previous Versions of Developer 6i Patchsets
          https://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/ml2_documents.showDocument?p_database_id=NOT&p_id=232313.1

          Here is an example:

          If you have Forms: 6.0.8.27.x --> You are on Developer 6i Patch 18
          If you have Forms: 6.0.8.26.x --> You are on Developer 6i Patch 17
          If you have Forms: 6.0.8.25.x --> You are on Developer 6i Patch 16
          If you have Forms: 6.0.8.24.x --> You are on Developer 6i Patch 15

          And so on.

              - Login as applmgr
              - Source the env file
              - Issue "cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin"
              - Run f60run or f60gen, it will return something like the following:

              Forms 6.0 (Forms Runtime) Version 6.0.8.27.0 (Production)

                  Dear Hussain,

                  I have a dough ..

                  for example

                  my forms version is "Forms 6.0 (Form Compiler) Version 6.0.8.28.0 " , so obviously the "Developer Patchset must be 19".

                  to find this Patchset19 my friend told me to minus 9 from the last two digits of the forms version then you will get the patchset level,,

                  Version 6.0.8.*_28_*.+0+ - 9 = _19_

                  Can anyone tell me why this formulation works for all the forms version and its patchset ?

                  kindly hussain i hope you can help me in this !!

                  Thanks in Advance

                  Abdul

                    No specific reason, but since Oracle follows a sequence whenever a new patchset is released, the 9 number works here. If you are asking why "9" specifically, then I have no answer and I doubt Oracle support do. Always refer to the Upgrade Developer 6i documents to verify and match (though that formula works).

                    Thanks,
                    Hussein

                        Hussien:

                        I got return from your instructions as following:
                        Forms 6.0 (Form Compiler) Version 6.0.8.27.0 (Production)

                        But from Help -> About Oracle Application. I got
                        Form Version : 11.5.10

                        Why they aren't the same?

                          Under Help > About, you will have to check the "Forms Server" section (like below):
                          Forms Server
