Well, I'd say that this error means that you used an invalid property. Obviously.

Did you, at least, check list of available properties? Open Forms Online Help System and search for SET_ITEM_PROPERTY. You might find yourself surprised.

If you want to set a checkbox, assign a value to it (depending on "Value when (Un)Checked" property); for example
:emp.employed_status := 'Y';

Well my friend the error is obvious because there is no such property as "set_item_property('x.q',checked , property_off)" because you cannot unchecked your check box like this you have to assign the uncheck value to your check box which you have defined in the check box's property.

But there's NO such a property! How can you use something that doesn't exist?

Without trying to sound annoying, I can only assume that as 'checked' is a reserved word the compiler was happy but at runtime it was unable to find a 'checked' within 'set_item_property'. Hence you got a RUNTIME error.
