You need to design your form on your workstation. FTP or copy the Forms's FMB file to the Unix box. If you generate for a terminal environment (character based), the syntax is:

f45gen USERID=userid/passwd@db_name MODULE_TYPE=FORM MODULE=module_name

If you want to generate a Library file, replace FORM with LIBRARY. Use f45genm to generate your form in a Motif environment.

Use the "f45run" command to run your form. Forms 6i uses commands f60gen, f60run, etc.
