Hi,

Why do you want to explicitly call the WHEN-VALIDATE-Item trigger?

If you want to check the current item before the update, try the
procedure "ENTER" (it triggers the validation) or put the code
from the WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM-trigger in a procedure and
call this procedure from the WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM-trigger and
the PRE-UPDATE-trigger.
