serial in form

hi
i have one form master & details
details is based on table : det_trans
it contain column : line_no which should contain the serial number of each tabular entry
describ is the last field in det_trans
i put in post_text_item of that field this code

      :det_trans.line_no:=:system.cursor_record;

then it saved ok
but sometimes , only sometimes , when i update one or more record in that details
it send me message : unable to update record
i checked all codes , i quess there is mistake in my previous code

is there any other code i use it to give that serial ?

Hi,

There can be a lot of reasons for that - it might be useful to know, why this error happens. So please also add the output of the 'show-error'-key (that may show the reason, why the record could not be updated).

Furthermore, do you always enter the describ-item? Because only then, the post-text-item-trigger is triggered. It may be useful to move that code to the POST-RECORD-trigger.

Best wishes
Markus

Hi,

The key for showing Oracle Forms errors is depending on system settings, version and key mappings. You might try the combinations Shift+F1 or  Ctrl+Shift+E (maybe Ctrl+F1 shows the key mappings).

Could you please post the output of following query:

select column_name, table_name from all_cons_columns where constraint_name = 'GL_PK';

Open in new window


Is this the master- or the detail-table?

year , period , tr_code , tran_no , line_no
table name : gen_ledgers
it is details table for master table name : master_gen_ledger

the first 4 columns :  year , period , tr_code , tran_no are the links between master & details


PROCEDURE Compl_Detail IS
BEGIN
      :GEN_LEDGERS.year:=:MASTER_GEN_LEDGER.year;
            :GEN_LEDGERS.period_no:=:MASTER_GEN_LEDGER.period_no;
                  :GEN_LEDGERS.tr_code:=:MASTER_GEN_LEDGER.tr_code;
                        :GEN_LEDGERS.TRAN_NO:=:MASTER_GEN_LEDGER.TRAN_NO;
      :gen_ledgers.line_no:=:system.cursor_record;
         
END;

before , i used to call that procedure post_text_item of : describt , as i mentioned before
but after your advice , i call it now on : post_insert  of the record level (gen_ledgers)

till now i didn't face any problem after changing the trigger , but let investigate the old records having problem ,  how to request the message inside the trigger to show the value of each 5 records mentioned above ?

MarkusIdCommented:
Do you mean you want to show the values of each field?

message('Year: ' || :gen_ledgers.year); synchronize;
message('Period No.: ' || :gen_ledgers.period_no); synchronize;

And so on...

NiceMan331Author Commented:
yes , but not for all records
i would like this message to retrieve only for records making the primary key  vioileted
