I am working on a custom Oracle application built using Designer and Forms 6i. I am attempting a cosmetic modification of one of the forms, recompiling and copying the fmx to the source directory, running the application and getting an error, which is traced to a custom function, and it seems that a parameter that is picked up prior to compiling is not picked up afterwards.

Clearly the problem is introduced when I compile the (cosmetically) changed form. Are there any additional steps that would retain existing state of functions etc?

Do you need that parameter or not? If not, remove it from the function. If yes, make sure the function sees it (if nothing else, initialize it in the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger).

I have resolved this problem by setting Initial Value on the property pallet of the item in question to a valid payroll number. However, I've now hit another problem relating to context of inserts. I'm going to raise another topic about order of events.

Thanks.
