hi pragya,
The first thing you have to do is to get the record you want then assign it to two global variables in FORM A.

say
:global.st_date := :block.start_date
:global.end_date := :block.end_date

In Form B you can have a control block and assign the above global variables to a control block say

:ctrl.var1 := :global.st_date
:ctrl.var2 := :global.end_date

In the block where the query is retrived you can have a Block level WHERE clause saying

start_date = :ctrl.var1 and end_date = :ctrl.var2

the operator can be and or between based upon u r requirement.Now transferring to control variable is a must as parameters and global variables are not acceptable at block level where clause.

There are others ways to it but i am comfortable with this hope this helps you.Reply abt the result

Regards

Praveen
