Connection problem with Forms/Reports

In Oracle9i, I cannot connect to the database with Forms or Reports. Error is ORA-12560. I can connect using SQL*Plus.
You've likely got a tnsnames.ora file that was created when you installed Forms/Reports that is being used and does not have the entries you need. Do a search for tnsnames.ora and either make duplicate copies match or delete all but one copy that has the correct entries in it.
