I think you are using oracle forms : is that correct ?

<<i would like to go through one item on the main to the details>>
The 'illegal calling' probaby comes from using your code in the 'post_text_item'- trigger.
Check the help documentation of oracle forms builder for  "About Restricted Built-in Subprogram".

Check that by moving the code to a 'next-item'-trigger on the item involved.
If that works there are several possibilities (add the code to every navigation-trigger that moves out of the item'),  (move the code to new-item-trigger in combination with setting a switch if you enter the item )  , (or create a timer that fires the code to do the desired navigation ).
