Try "exit_form".  Of course, you need to make sure the form is in enter-query mode at the time, otherwise it really will exit the form, and that probably is not what you want.

Hi,

If you are using Forms 4.5 you can set the environment variable FORMS45_NONBLK=Y in Unix.
For Windows this has to be set in the registry.

After this Cancel_query will show a dialog box when you execute the cancel_query built-in.

Regards.

I usually use RAISE FORM_TRIGGER_FAILURE; or simply RETURN;
