This has been a LIFESAVER for me in various projects. I have been able to use it to change font sizes and colors across hundreds of forms. I have even been able to put code in every form in my system in the when-new-form triggers.


Important to Note:
  1. The script is relevant for Oracle Forms Developer,  9.0.X or higher
  2. It requires write privileges in the destination directory and read privileges in the source directory.
