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 =
	   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;
