External Forms

The External Forms feature allows you to add Oracle forms to a list of forms from which they may be manually selected and run (using the Miscellaneous>Forms menu option). (These forms are referred to as "external forms".) This feature is available in PMS when the General>Run External Forms application function is set to Y. In ORS, this application function is set to Y and hidden (always available).

To access the Forms option, select Miscellaneous>Forms. The Forms screen appears.


Highlight your choice of form and select the OK button to launch that form in OPERA.
