[Quoted] Maybe I've used Forms 3.0 too much, but that version of Forms had in it where the form could do an EXECUTE_QUERY in the PRE_FORM trigger (I think that's what it was called back then) - thereby enabling you to call up records immediately after you enter the form. The user wouldn't have to do a thing.

Now, Forms 5.0 doesn't let you do this same thing. I'd like to have a form that, upon entry, a set of default records are queried up for the user. This should happen automatically upon navigation into the form.

How could this be done with a base-table block?
