on a WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED, I want to execute 2 SQL UPDATE commands. So in the PL/SQL EDITOR, I created the following code:



 FORMS_DDL ('UPDATE TABLE1 SET EMPNO = "W3333-";
             commit;
            UPDATE TABLE2 SET EMPNO = "X3333-";
             commit; ');

I can't get it to work.   Where am i going wrong ?

Try as shown below
FORMS_DDL ('UPDATE TABLE1 SET EMPNO = '||''''||'W3333-'||''''||';');
FORMS_DDL ('commit;')
FORMS_DDL ('UPDATE TABLE2 SET EMPNO = '||''''||'X3333-'||''''||';');
FORMS_DDL ('commit;')

Commit statement after the first update is not required, no problem if we issue commit after every dml statement.
