Copy Records From One Data Block To Another Data Block In Oracle Forms

In this tutorial you will learn to copy the records from one data block to another data block on same form and on a same canvas in Oracle Forms.
Below is the screen shot of the form and you can download this form for your reference from the following link (Table script is also included):

In the above picture you can see that there are two blocks, first one is the block based on a table and the second one is a non-database data block, but this is not necessary you can make the block based on a table also.

The functionality of this form is, user will select the record above then click on Copy button to copy the record below, it is like making the selection of records from a data block. User can also remove the records from the second block where the records are being copied.

The whole functionality is written on the push button Copy and below is the code written on When-Button-Pressed trigger:

BEGIN
GO_BLOCK ('COPIED');
FIRST_RECORD;
LOOP
 -- CHECK THE VALUE IF RECORD IS EMPTY IF NOT THEN JUMP TO ANOTHER
IF :copied.empno IS NULL THEN
-- EXIT TO COPY THE RECORD
EXIT;
END IF;
-- ELSE CONTINUE FINDING EMPTY RECORD
IF :SYSTEM.LAST_RECORD = 'TRUE' THEN
CREATE_RECORD;
EXIT;
END IF;
NEXT_RECORD;
END LOOP;
-- COPY THE RECORD
:copied.empno := :scott_emp.empno;
:copied.ename := :scott_emp.ename;
:copied.job := :scott_emp.job;
:copied.mgr := :scott_emp.mgr;
:copied.hiredate := :scott_emp.hiredate;
:copied.sal := :scott_emp.sal;
:copied.comm := :scott_emp.comm;
:copied.deptno := :scott_emp.deptno;
-- GO BACK TO FIRST BLOCK
GO_BLOCK ('SCOTT_EMP');
END;

You should replace the value of data block and item reference (:copied.empno := :scott_emp.empno) with your form’s data block and items.

Below is the code of Remove push button of second data block to clear the record when pressed:

CLEAR_RECORD;

Just a One line code which is sufficient.
