My version of SQL*Forms 3.0 which run on OpenVMS contain only "Modify - Trigger - Default" under the "Block" menu.

If you are interested in these, here you are: "Default" creates a default block (something like a wizard). "Modify" allows you to change block's properties (such as number of displayed records, default WHERE and ORDER BY clause etc.). "Trigger" creates a block-level trigger(s).

Sorry; me (as well as many other OraFAQ Forum members) can not / do not want to download and open DOC files (read the OraFAQ Forum Guide to learn what file formats are welcome).

Please, read the Guide once again.

BMP's are images, true. But far too large in size! The same JPG image would be much, much smaller (and easier to open). Your BMP is 760 KB; JPG is 42 KB. Next time, please, follow instructions and attach an acceptable image (JPG or PNG).

As of your question: I was completely mistaken; these "blocks" have nothing to do with what I meant of.

There is a form called 'customer_mar'. It contains several blocks: 'employee', 'calendar', 'export', 'toolbar' and 'progress_indicator'.

I believe that 'employee' contains information about employees. 'Calendar' is probably a block which enables end-user to easily choose a data (from a calendar, instead of typing it manually). 'Toolbar' might be a user-defined toolbar with buttons like "Save changes", "Next Employee" etc. Form author has decided to use his/her own toolbar instead of the default one Oracle Forms offers. 'Progress_indicator' probably does what its name suggests - something like progress bar we see while installing software (shows us how much we've done already). 'Export' block? No idea; perhaps it is used to export data from the 'employee' table using Oracle's Export utility?

The fact is, actually, that we (Forum members) are not supposed to know what these blocks are for. A paragraph you read above was pure guessing. It really doesn't have to be true at all. It is you who has this form, can open it and "debug" what it does (which goes with underlying schema and all its objects). All we have is a picture.

To some extent....yes
those blocks were required for implementation of another business logic ...
Any ways... Thanks David
