Hi guys,

I have a non-updateable, non-database date field with format mask DD/MM/YYYY but it keeps raising this error. It was populated in a pll procedure using
Copy(to_char(v_date_var, 'DD/MM/YYYY'), 'block.date_item');

When I try to catch the value in On-error trigger using Name_in(:system.trigger_item), it shows valid value (e.g. 04/06/2009). What am I missing here?

Hope someone could help.
Btw, I'm using Forms 10G.

TIA.

If both of them are DATE, why do you use TO_CHAR?
