Oracle Message 'Do you want to save your changes?'

I am using Forms 4.5

I made a minor change to a program unit on a form which validates that the serial number entered on Block A is within a specific range. (I had to change the numbers of the range that is all) The When-Validate-Item trigger on the serial number field calls this program unit.

Once the form has been compiled, on a previous block (block B) the following situation arises:
When the user tries to navigate out of the block B to a previous one, block C, an Oracle message appears asking the user if he/she wants to save the changes made, when NO changes were made, all the user did was navigate to the block and attempt to navigate out of it almost immediately.

When this error was reported, I rolled back to a previous fmb version, redid the changes, and tested. Now the message did not appear. What is happening? ANyone has had an experience as this?

Also,why does this message appear even when no changes have been made to the records, no changes at all. All the user does is navigate to the block in question and attempts to navigate to the previous block.

If you use different blocks a possible solution is to define the items as "display" items (if you really do not update them).
If you you call a different form then call it with "nosession" option.

Further investigation into the problem came up with some interesting points. Here is what was happening but why is the question:
Oracle, for some reason, detected the block status as changed when data was retrieved and displayed in a multi record block on that form.(This was not the block the change was made to). The following message was displayed: “Do you want to save the changes you have made?”. If the user hit the Yes button, a second message was displayed: “FRM-40400:Transaction complete.  _  [number] of records applied and saved.” even though there had been no changes made.  
Has any one had a similar experience? The block status was confirmed to be “CHANGED” instead of “QUERY”.

The changed form was discarded and the fix redone. This time, the block status remained at “QUERY”, no message was displayed and the form behaved as expected.
Any ideas on what could have happened in the first instance?

Isn't there a trigger with some initialization of items there ? Also Post-Query trigger ...

This is from an "Initialization" topic in the on-line help:
Note: If a trigger assigns a value to an item in a null record, the record is no longer null. Form Builder never assigns an initial value to any item in the record. For example, a PRE-FORM trigger fires while the form contains only null records. If it assigns a value to an item, it must ensure that all other items of the record receive appropriate initial values.

Looking at:
which validates that the serial number entered on Block A is within a specific range. (I had to change the numbers of the range that is all)

Please, carefully check this code or post it here. may be you put in that item  a value 9may be the old original value), or assign a value.
