I'm just started to learn using oracle form6. My previous programming experience was using visual basic 6. Now, using oracle form 6, can I do 'pop-up message' like the one in visual basic? for example, if the previous telephone number column has already entered, then the next column, i.e., atlernative_telp must be empty. but, how to do the pop-up message like "you can only enter one telephone number". is it possible doing it using oracle form6? Thank you.

you can accomplish this one of two ways.
raise an error using form built-in trigger like:

if telephone_no > 0 then
message('you can only enter one telephone number');
message('you can only enter one telephone number');
raise form_trigger_failure;

or set up an alert message.
check out alert built-in from forms help menu
