    Oracle report 10g vs Oracle Forms 11g

    36368ccd-1921-478d-9716-f90da72c8ed6

      Hi,

       

      My application run on Oracle 10g with Oracle Forms&Report 10g

       

      I have to modify a report file which was saved by oracle report 11g.

       

      When I open the file with Oracle Report 10, I have the following warning : "Avertissement ! Ouverture d'un rapport enregistré avec une version plus récente. Risque de perte de fonctionnalité. Continuer ?" (translation : "The file opened was saved with a more recent version of Oracle Report. You may lose some information. Continue ?").

       

      What kind of information I may lose ?

       

      Can I modify my file on Oracle Report 11g and compile it in Oracle Report 10g ?

      Or

      Can I modify my file on Oracle Report 11g and compile it in Oracle Report 11g and run it on Oracle Report 10g ?

       

      Thanks a lot.

       

      Michel

          Michel,

          Question 1 - the file will no longer be useable with Reports 10g - you will loose everything.

          Question 2 - No, newer versions of Oracle Forms and Reports are not backward compatible with older versions.

          Question 3 - No, see answer to question 2.
