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

post_record not solve the problem

add the output of the 'show-error'-key (that may show the reason, why the record could not be updated).

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 ?

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...
