Thanks for all your responses!

This particular question was more academic. I know about creating common blocks in a program. In ProC, and PL/SQL, all my cursors and most variables are global.

Here, I'm only using buttons, and a message to figure out how to fire the other trigger. This is very easy to do in Visual Basic.

Is is possible to do this in Oracle Forms 5.0? From the initial responses, it doesn't sound possible.

Thanks again,
