Many times there will be request from client to change standard oracle logo in forms. You can change this logo by following below steps:
1.- Open the file $INST_TOP/ora/10.1.2/forms/server/appsweb.cfg
2.- Check the baseHTML and baseHTMLJInitiator variables inside the file. They point to theappsbase.htm file used in the forms (ussually is the same file for both)
3.- Open the file(s) pointed by those variables
4.- Go to the “// Forms Applet Parameters” section related to the client browser you use
5.- Check if there’s a line that references to “PARAM”. An example of how that line mustbe for Internet Explorer is:
IEhtml += ‘<’ + ‘PARAM value=”‘ + xlogo + ‘”>’;
add or change that line according to what you have and what you want.
6.- Go to the “// Oracle Applications default Parameters” section in the same file
7.- Add or edit the definition of xlogo variable. It must be:var xlogo = “%logo%”
