I have a problem with a form in Oracle Applications 10.7.0.

FORM - RCVCOFND.fmb ( Find Expected Receipts (16) ) Receiving--> Receipts

Upon entering this form Input Focus defaults to "Source Type". Users have decided that they would like to Default to "Purchase Order" item upon entry to this form.

I added code to CUSTOM.PLL that tests for WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE and form_name however form_name returns "RCVRCERC" which is not the form that I want to modify navigation.

Further investigation reveals that form RCVCOFND has its own PLL, BUT we are not allowed to modify this PLL, only the CUSTOM.pll is modifiable.

I have triggers at KEY-NEXT-ITEM,WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM in the form RCVCOFND for the item PO_NUM in the block FIND and also in the WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED-TRIGGER of the button FIND to check whether the PO_NUM is NULL or not.However this doesn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions or could advise on a workaround please.
