I'm working on adding the attachment functionality. I added columns to my table:
Column Name Data Type ATTACHMENT BLOB ATTACH_MIMETYPE VARCHAR2(255) ATTACH_FILENAME VARCHAR2(255) ATTACH_LAST_UPDATE DATE ATTACH_CHARSET VARCHAR2(128)
I added a File Browse item to my Insert form with a storage type of BLOB column specified in Item Source attribute. Content disposition: Attachment.
The Source section is source used: Always, Source Type: Database Column. Source Value or expression: ATTACHMENT. Format Mask: BLOB.
When I run this page, I get the following error message:
Error: No corresponding DML process found for page 2

So, what do I need to do to resolve this DML process issue?
Thanks so much for your help.
The form page must have an Automated Row Fetch (ARF) process based on the table containing the BLOB—even if the form items are populated using another method. If you don't load the form data via ARF, create an ARF process and disable it by setting its Condition type to Never. (Yes, this is weird, but it somehow keeps the APEX internals happy.)
I was messing around and I found that by clearing out my Number/Date Format field, the error above (ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error: character to number conversion error) no longer occurred when viewing the report page. This is what was in the Number/Date Format field:
To get there, I set the Number/Date Format field to BLOB, which opened up the Blob Column Attributes section, which I populated as follows:
Format Mask: DOWNLOAD
Table: MANUAL_CHECK_LOG (my table name)
Primary Key Column 1: ID
Content Disposition: Attachment
Download Text: Download
What's the right way to set the Attributes so I don't get the number conversion error? What am I doing wrong?
Then I can create the ARF. Is it correct that I should create the ARF on my Insert Page, in the Page Processing section, under Processing?
Thanks again for the help. Have I mentioned yet that I'm very grateful for the assistance?
