i am know very little about oracle, but if it is any thing like sql server you can't just call a trigger.  they are designed to activate when you insert, delete, or update rows in the table they are associated with.  you need a stored procedure if you want to call it.

jrspano,
Thanks for your response. My problem is that the triger which is in Oracle database does not activated when I insert record, but it should. I can see my records in a database, but without any changes that triger should do. That's why I wondering how I can call that triger from VB by writing a module to do that.

i would think that the trigger is written wrong then.  it should fire every time you insert a row nomatter how you do it.

jrspano,

The triger is written fine and it's working with a different application that uses the same database. Any ideas why it's not fire when I insert records from VB application?

I am using Dao connection. And I am saving the records with recordset.addnew. Do you think that it will work if I rewrite it using SQL string and execute it???

i would give that a try.  pick an easy one and give it a try. I always use sql so i don't know if the .addnew is what is doing it or not.  I do know that my sql always works with triggers on sql server.
