Is TEXT.IO function applicable to Oracle 10g Forms? Is there any other way to upload text files to a database table using Oracle 10g Forms? the procedure is that the user should be able to select text file from his station and upload the contents to a table.
With Web versions, TEXT_IO will execute on the application server. If you want to deal with the user machine, you have yo install and use the Webutil library that contains a CLIENT_TEXT_IO equivalent package.
WebUtil comes preinstalled with Forms 10g R2, but you will need to perform some configuration changes to enable webutil. Check out the Oracle Forms Webuitil - Production Release and follow the configuration steps in the Webutil Doc. It shouldn't take more than about 15-30 minutes to configure. Hint: Don't take any shortcuts in the the configuation steps. If you follow the steps exactly everything should work just fine.
Hope this helps,
