Basically you might get some application specific stadards problem, but some times you will get the following.

Just open PLLs, FMB, MMBs in 6i Designer and compile and save the file. Most of the times the coversion goes very smooth.

1). Master datail forms, master block should be a base table block. (Fix : Convert non-base table to base table block, might need to rewrite some code)

2). Some boilerplate text might get disapper when you use CALL_FORM to open that form. (Fix : use prompts or display items in 6i instead of boiler plate text). -- This occurs for only few forms, do not know why.

3).pls_INTEGER data type is no more in 6i ( Fix: need to change that data type to NUMBER).

4).You will see some new problems, like form will freeze and kick you out from application when it is called form other forms using CALL_FORM. (Fix: Reattach PLLs and compile form (This might not work all the times))

5.Memory leakage problem etc (Fix :Select 6i with patch 4 and higher to overcome this).

6). Toolbar problems.

Hope this helps.
