2. How to restrict a parameter list with parameters?

The Restrict List to Predetermined Values is a checkbox
that indicates whether a value for the parameter must be in
the list of values. For example, if you check Restrict
List to Predetermined Values and the Initial Value does not
match a value in the list of values, an error will be
generated when you accept the Parameter property sheet.
Similarly, if you set a value for the parameter on the
command line or in a command script and it does not match a
value in the list of values, an error will be generated
when the report is run. If you check Restrict List to
Predetermined Values, a list of values will appear in the
runtime parameter form. If you do not check it, a combo
box will appear (i.e., you can enter values as well as
select from the list).

3. What is the exact navigation to create a radio button in form6i?
can we create the radio button in report6i?

Just create a radio button on the GUI part means layout
editor(i.e on canvas) then n then the form will prompt you
to create radiogroup under which this radio button will
reside. U just give name the radio group then give name the
radio button. After that U have to go object navigator and
select the property of the radiogroup then set the default
value , oter value thats all.

5. When to use Place holder columns in Oracle Reports and what is a place holder column?

place holder columns are like global variables in the reports.

Variables declared in the PL/SQL code they cannot be the source of the field. So, if we assign the variables to placeholder columns they can be the source of the field since they are global variables.

6. How many types of trigger can be used in a table at a time?

Add_parameter(pl_id,'DESTYPE',TEXT_PARAMETER, :DESTYPE);
ADD_PARAMETER(pl_id,'DESFORMAT',TEXT_PARAMETER,:DESFORMAT);
ADD_PARAMETER(pl_id,'DESNAME',TEXT_PARAMETER,:DESNAME);
Add_parameter(pl_id,'MODE',TEXT_PARAMETER, 'BITMAP');
Add_parameter
(pl_id,'untcd',TEXT_PARAMETER,:GLOBAL.G_STRUNITCODE);
Add_parameter
(pl_id,'FYCD',TEXT_PARAMETER,:GLOBAL.G_STRFINYEARCODE);
Add_Parameter(pl_id, 'PARAMFORM', TEXT_PARAMETER, 'NO');

IF :id is not nullTHEN
Run_Product
(REPORTS,PLANDETAIL.rep',SYNCHRONOUS,RUNTIME,FILESYSTEM,
pl_id, NULL);
DESTROY_PARAMETER_LIST(pl_id);
END IF;
end if;
end;

8. Suppose there are two textfields t1,t2 in form and we have some value in textfield t1.now the question is that how can we copy the value of the t1 to textfield t2?
