I have a form with a block named Employee whose base table is EMP.
I have defined pre-insert, post-insert, pre-delete, post-delete, pre-update, post-update triggers at form level
now i insert some rows , update some rows and then delete some rows and then hit the save button to save the information to the database. In which sequence does the above mentioned trigggers fire?

They fire in the order of the affected records in the block, with deletes firing first.

Say you select records 1,2,3,4,5
You update record 1, delete records 2,3, insert a new record 2a between 1 and 3 and update record 4 and finally add a new record 6

It would first do the deletes for 2 and 3, then the update for 1, the insert for 2a, the update for 4 and finally the insert for 6.
Obviously, the 'pre' trigger fire before the 'post' triggers

An easy way to find out the firing sequence by yr  own is write a text message like '...........trigger fire' in each of the trigger and then run the form. it will shows the messages at appropriate actions and so you can find the seq. order.

hi

the method given by leoahmad is also one way. the other way is go to program-> tools->preferences->runtime-> check the dubug messages. when u press every key u can find out which trigger is firing first.

in case i have mentioned the option incorrectly, do bare with me since i dont have forms in my PC now.

regards
