I know that when I call a form (e.g. using call_form) I can set the mode to QUERY_ONLY so that users cannot insert/delete/update records in called form. My question is if I issue a DML statement in a procedure e.g.  

insert into table_name values (value1, value2,...);

Would above DML statement insert values in to the table?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the inputs.

ajexpert, what I mean in question is would a DML statement in a QUERY_ONLY form work? I tested it  and it doestn't work for me but it seems working for someone else I saw. That's the reason why I subbmitted a question here.

Thanks again!
