Frm-40208 from running in query mode. cannot change database fields

Hi,
Could some one help me with this.
I am calling a form from another form. I am passing the parameter list to the calling form and doing a query by setting the block property. But when queries the message
FRM-40208 Form running in query mode. cannot change database fields .
I do not want the message to appear when they go the called form . Please some one could help me how could I avoid displaying the message.
Regards
Bain

Hi,
Good day! I am working with a module that also calls another form. It uses call_form with query mode parameter set to query_only. My problem is, whenever i call the other form using the call_form, it would display the called module and then as it populates the detail block of the called form, it will display frm-40208 from running in query mode. cannot change database fields per record. What I want is for the message to be displayed only once.
I have tried capturing the error by using on-error trigger, but it doesn't go to that whenever the other form was being called. I think the message has to do with the post-query trigger, because it passes some values on a dbase block objects.
Do you have any suggested solutions or workarounds to make the message display only once whenever the other form is being invoked by the call_form?
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions/ideas.
Thanks and regards,
ASantiago

  • FRM-40208: Form running in query-only mode. Cannot change database fields.

    Hi,
    I am using forms 6i where it is calling a form from a menu in query like call_form(,query_only). Now an error is occurring on call of that form ‘FRM-40208: Form running in query-only mode. Cannot change database fields.’ Though this is been handled to give a certain message from on_error message from a package from library.
    Now the issue is that the error keeps on popping even after the ok button is pressed. There are number of records from the table. How can we handle the error. Any suggestion would be really appreciated!!!
    Regards,
    Rajesh

    thanks Gred but i have resolved the issue. it seems that each row was going into query_only mode (program written such a way). therefore the error was showing even after the OK button. handled the issue from ON_ERROR trigger. anyway thanks for your time Gred!

  • Running in Query Mode

    Dear Friend
    I got this message "FRM-40208: Form running in query-only mode. Cannot change database fields."
    This happened only when I run the program through the application menu program
    But when I run the program alone it is not give this message and it is inserting
    Without any problem.
    Please help

    It depends on what you're using as a menu. If it's a drop-down menu or a form then the code will be in an mmb or fmb file respectively and you'll need to change the QUERY_ONLY parameter in the specific Call_Form procedure call.
    If that doesn't work or there is no Call_Form procedure call (eg Open_Form is used instead) then it may be that the menu itself is opened in Query-Only mode, so you'll have to change the way that is opened, but beware any change you make will affect the way other forms are run from the menu as well.
    If the menu is a web page, or is opened in Query-Only mode in a web page, then you probably have query_only=YES set in the link to your form, so change it to query_only=NO.
    If the menu is opened in Query Only mode from the command line or a shorcut then check for query_only in the parameters.

  • Running sql query across multiple (remote) databases

    I'd like to run a query that pulls information from multiple databases which are not on the same machine. Is this possible using SQL Developer?

    If you are still interested, there is a tool that can query multiple databases and save results in a single text file that you can then modify as necessary - see www.bsutils.com/MuSQL.html

  • How do I get a value from a portal form for a non database field ? HELP!!

    I have a form based off of a table that I added a field to. The form is to allow the user to change abbreviation for a
    department field ie. BIO to BIOL. for a biology department. I have a pl/sql procedure for validation using the custom option
    on the update button to verify the user and update the data. I have tested to code at the sql prompt and it works.
    They only difference between the prompt and the form is the non-database field new_dept_abbr was added to the
    form. I don't know how to capture the value of the user input into a variable that can be used in the pl/sql.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    I have tried this approach
    v_new_dept_abbr := p_session.get_value_as_varchar2(
    p_block_name => 'default',
    p_attribute_name => 'new_dept_abbr'
    have tried using p_attribute_name as 'a_new_dept_abbr' but this does work and does not exist in the body of the form.
    Have also tried setting the p_block_name to _session - still doesn't work.
    Any ideas??
    Thanks
    Debbie Brennan

    Thanks for the info. I tried that and it still doesn't pull the value. I have opened a TAR via metalink, but I'm not getting any
    satisfactory answers. I ran across an note - 137172.1 that has this snippet of information in it.
    Unfortunately, at this time (portal 3.0.7.6.2) , a non-table item cannot be
    referenced in a plsql event handler, only in client side JavaScript code. This
    is a known limitation and will be fixed in a future release.
    I don't know how to get the value from the client side JavaScript code to a pl/sql variable. Do you?
    I've been trying to get them to tell me if the 'known issue' has been addressed in 3.0.9.
    I'll keep at it. Thanks so much for your suggestion I appreciate it.

  • Cannot change Phone field in contacts

    My brother has an iPhone 4 running iOS7. In the contacts app he cannot change the type of phone number. If you click "add phone", the label shows "radio" as the default number type. If you click on the blue "radio" label it gives the picklist of available options. This list does NOT include iPhone as an option. On my iPhone, in the upper right corner, I can select Edit to change the picklist or create a custom label. On his phone, instead of "Edit" it says "Done" - he does not have an edit option.
    These are are the choices he has for the phone label: radio, home fax, home, company main, work, work fax, car, mobile, assistant, and pager.
    Any idea how he can fix this to be able to edit that list and to add a custom label?

    It sounds as if your brother is syncing his contacts to an Exchange account. If so, the label options are controlled by the Exchange account. The only way to get the ability to add custom labels would be to sync to some other type of account. Of course, that may not be an option if that's the only place he has his contacts.
    For what it's worth, it's not necessary to label anything "iPhone". "Mobile" works just fine. It will not affect whether or not you can FaceTime or iMessage a contact.
    Best of luck.

  • How to pass a date parameter from report builder query designer to oracle database

    i'm using report builder 3.0 connected to oracle database. i'm trying to pass a date parameter in the query with no success, i don't
    know the exact syntax. I've tried :
    SELECT * FROM igeneral.GCL_CLAIMS where CREATED_BY IN (:CREATED_BY) AND CLAIM_YEAR IN(:UW_YEAR) AND (LOSS_DATE) >To_Date('01/01/2014','mm/dd/yyyy')
    it worked perfectly.
    However if i try to put a date parameter "From" instead of 01/01/2014 it will not work, a Define Query Parameter popup window appear and error occurred after i fill
    the values (usually i shouldnt get this popup i should enter the value when i run the report)
    SELECT * FROM igeneral.GCL_CLAIMS where CREATED_BY IN (:CREATED_BY) AND CLAIM_YEAR IN(:UW_YEAR) AND (LOSS_DATE) >To_Date(:From,'mm/dd/yyyy')
    appreciate your assistance

    Hi Gorgo,
    According to your description, you have problem when in passing a parameter for running a Oracle Query. Right?
    Based on my knowledge, it use "&" as synax for parameter in Oracle, like we use "@" in SQL Server. In this scenario, maybe you can try '01/01/2014' when inputing in "From". We are not sure if there's any limitation for To_Date()
    function. For your self-testing, you can try the query in sqlplus/sql delveloper. Since your issue is related to Oracle query, we suggest you post this thread onto Oracle forum.
    Best Regards,

  • My Dell Inspiron runs Vista, and I cannot change the home pages on my browser

    I have a Dell Inspiron 530S running Vista. I updated Firefox to 5.0. I want to change the home page for one of the tabs. I change the tab to what I want, I go to Options - General - Use Current Page, and it seems to register. I then close Firefox and reopen it. When I do this, I get the old home page - not the one that was on the screen when I selected Options-General-UseCurrent Page on that tab.
    What do I do in order to have that tab come up with the page I want when I invoke Firefox?

    Make sure it says "'''Show My Home Page'''" in the first dropdown menu at the top before you try to change it.

    The system always asks with the description of the field you refer to with the parameter variable in the select statement.
    I sometimes defined a UDT only for getting the appropriate title in the parameter entering window. The table has no data; I used it only for its field names.
    (The parameter request can be placed inside a comment and the entered value is used setting an SQL variable like this:
    declare @d datetime
    /*select t.createdate from ordr t where t.createdate=[%0]*/
    set @d=[%0]
    This SQL variable can be used later in the real query.)
    (But then you loose the possibility to choose from the u2018List of existing valuesu2019
