I want to allow modifications to a certain key field in another block only on condition that the record in another block is a new record that so far has not been saved.  How do I test if this is so in PL/SQL?

Syntax of Get_record_property

GET_RECORD_PROPERTY(record_number, block_name, property);

So I think we should code this as

IF Get_Record_Property(:SYSTEM.CURSOR_RECORD,'another_block',STATUS) = 'NEW'
