This section provides a detailed description of the contents of the Options panel in the CAST Oracle Forms Extractor.

This panel enables you to define the various additional parameters for the extraction process:

Configuration File Path

This field is used to specify a specific .config file that tells the extractor what to extract - it is only used if the default values need to be overwritten.

CAST recommends leaving this parameter as defined.

Extraction File Path
This command specifies the location you would like the extractor to output the Extraction action results to.

By default:

  • the field will be pre-populated with %HOMEPATH%\exportResults - this means that the results of the extraction process will be stored in the %HOMEPATH% folder (this resolves to the current user's home directory).
  • the results are outputted in raw format in the selected folder - you can override this in the Expert panel by activating the Zip Packaging option. 

If you want to store the results of the extraction process in a different place, enter a location manually or use the Browse button to locate a folder. The screen shot below will result in raw output files stored in located in the D:\Squirrel\results\exportResults folder:
