Post-query trigger doesn’t fire

On developer 2000 forms 6 , we have a form with 7 blocks, one of them is a control block ( not database), we use it to enter the specified record primary key and in the key-next-item it will execute query for the remind 6 database blocks and each block have a post-query trigger . the problem is that the post-query trigger does not fire for all blocks. even they have records and they retreive them.

Is the main query executed in the blocks where you say the post-query trigger is not executed?  Check the properties of each of your block relations.  They should have:
"Automatic query" - Yes
"Deferred" - No

If "Deferred" is set to Yes, or "Automatic query" to No, the form will not execute the main query in the child block by default, and therefore the post-query will not fire either.  Does that explain what you are seeing?

Another possibility is that the main query in a child block did not find any records.  In that case, the post-query will not be executed for that child block.  

I've never seen a case in Oracle Forms where a query was executed in a block that retrieved at least one row and the post-query trigger in the block failed to fire.  If there are errors in the post-query trigger, or if it raises unhandled exceptions, then it may not give the results you expect.

It is very strange. Have you done some testing (put messages to post_query triggers ...)? Also use
Do_Key('Execute_Query');    instead of     Execute_Query;
POST_QUERY trigger MUST reside in the block in which you fetch records. This is the case you described. Try also to put the focus on the block:
May be you leave the focus on your control block, but it has no postquery trigger.

we use the go_block and the do_key
and i used the debugger but it didn't fire the post-query for all database blocks just for 2 of them
You either do not execute query against the block and simply insert records there or do not go to the block. Check carefully the logic ...

I've seen this before...and the cause was as Mark noted

Another possibility is that the main query in a child block did not find any records.  In that case,
the post-query will not be executed for that child block.
