Oracle Forms question

Oracle form question

I have 2 new fields added. comment_user and comment_date.


when the user enter comments in the vend_change_comments field, I have to populate comment_user as user and comment_date as sysdate.

In the forms pre-update trigger I have this code.. If the old user and old date is not the same as present user and date, the update it to user and sysdate. I have this code, which is not working. Need help

	v_old_comment_user    dss.disposition_details.comment_user%TYPE;
	v_old_comment_date    dss.disposition_details.comment_date%TYPE; 
	Cursor C1 is
	select comment_user,comment_date
	  from dss.disposition_details
	 where id = :disposition_details.id
	   and action = 'R';
	Open C1;
	Fetch C1 into v_old_comment_user
	Close C1;
If v_old_comment_user is null and v_old_comment_date is null then
		:disposition_details.comment_user := user;
	  :disposition_details.comment_date := sysdate;	
Elsif v_old_comment_user != :disposition_details.comment_user then
    	:disposition_details.comment_user:= user; 
ElsIf v_old_comment_date != :disposition_details.comment_date then
    		:disposition_details.comment_date := sysdate;
End if;

" is not working " means does not compile,  does compile and gives an error at runtime,  does compile and gives no error but is not updating comment_user.
If the last one is true verify  the trigger fires (put a message after the begin and if it does fire put additional messages with the value of the items that matter to  debug the problem), else give the error message for compile or runtime
