Is the entry block based on an existing table ?
Has the table a primairy and/or unique key  defined to prevent duplicatie entries ?

If both questions can be answered with yes , you can depend on the default behaviour of  oracle forms and the oracle databases :  the user wil get an error message.
Your job might be to modify the message in a friendly message for your user.

If not both questions can be answered with yes, try to explain in more detail what you want to do:
the when-validate-item, when-validate-record triggers are problaby the ones to use.

i hope, you have non-database block,
so,

to show your message, please create an ALERT object with MESSAGE name,

if your blockname is MYBLOCK,
please, write the following code into your button-trigger "WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED"


it is possible for you to improve the following code.

------------------------------------

declare
  but varchar2(200);
 
begin
    go_block('MYBLOCK');
    first_record;
    loop
        begin    
          insert into <your_table> (a_column, b_cloumn)
          values (:MYBLOCK.a_clm, :MYBLOCK.b_clm);
        exception
           when dupvalonindex then
             set_alert_button("MESSAGE",alert_message_text,"write here your message");
             but := show_alert("MESSAGE");
        end;

        IF :system.last_record = 'TRUE' THEN
        EXIT;
      END IF;
    end loop;
end;

if your block is a database block and all items of the block are your db table  columns, and if your table does not have a primary key, you can use PRE-INSERT trigger.

Define the PRE-INSERT Trigger on your block.
in the PRE-INSERT trigger, you can check the data exists or not,

-- in the pre-insert trigger,
declare
   cursor c (p_column1 IN VARCHAR2, p_column2 IN VARCHAR2)  is
        select * from <your_table>
        where column1 = p_column1 and column2 = p_column2;
   r c%ROWTYPE;
begin
   open c( :MYBLOCK.a_clm, :MYBLOCK.b_clm);
   fetch c into r;
   if c%FOUND then
             raise form_trigger_failure;  
  end if;
  close c;
end;
