Item will not fetch values

Hi all,

I have a number of fileds on my page that are entered with user-input. Then, I have one hidden-protected field that is composed of 2 concatenated values from another field, so that I can use this field in the automatic row update process.

However, this composed field does not always (sometimes it does..) fetch the data from the user-input fields, so then month and year are left blank in the composed field and I get an ill formed date (01-- instead of 01-10-2008). A part of the debug shows that the user input fields are filled with data, but the composed field does not fetch the data (see bold parts):

0.03: ...Item Not Null Validation: P5_JAAR
0.03: Branch point: BEFORE_PROCESSING
0.03: Processing point: AFTER_SUBMIT
0.03: Show ERROR page...
0.03: Performing rollback...
To compose the P5_MAAND_OPNAME field I do the following:

Source type: Database column
Source value or expression: MAAND_OPNAME (name of the db column)
Default value: '01-'||:P5_MAAND||'-'||:P5_JAAR
Defaukt value type: PL/SQL expression

Is this not the right approach? It should work and it does occasionaly, but more often it doesn't...
