Create an Oracle Function within Report builder. I need to create a before trigger and then a after trigger with in rdf

I need to create a before trigger that looks at a table to see if a row exists if it does exists then it needs to check a field to see if the field is a valid code.

If a valid code is found then the rdf / report can run.  If not a valid code then the report should fail.


after trigger if a valid code is found then the report runs then after the report runs then a after trigger is fired that
changes the valid code to a invalid code.

How can I do this within the report.

if there are no possibilities to make the checks before report is started, you could place a trigger like this in the BEFORE PARAMETER FORM trigger (the trigger is the first one to be executed when report starts):

DECLARE
    v_cnt NUMBER;
BEGIN
    --
    -- here we check if row exists:
    --
    SELECT COUNT(*)
    INTO v_cnt
    FROM <your_table>
    WHERE <your_conditions>;
    --
    IF v_cnt > 0 THEN
        -- data found; do nothing:
        NULL;
    ELSE
        -- no data found; raise error and exit report:
       SRW.MESSAGE(100, 'No data found ... exit report ...');
       RAISE SRW.PROGRAM_ABORT;
    END IF;
END;

in the AFTER REPPORT TRIGGER place a trigger like this:

BEGIN
    UPDATE <your_table> -- OR INSERT/DELETE ....
    SET <your_column> = '<your_value>'
    WHERE <your_condition>;
    --
    COMMIT;
    --
END;

good luck!
