I am trying to create a tabular form that uses multiple altec_item functions (select_list, select_list_from_LOV,...). Whenever I attempt to create a new page and select Tabular Form, I am forced to select a table and columns. So I have just selected any table and once the sql is created, I overwrite it with my own sql. When I try to apply the changes, I get an error anytime I use apex_item... for a particular column. I have tried the same creating a standard report with the same results. I have read at least 20 examples but none say where to start from when creating the tabular form and just jump right in to the code. Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
You can start with creating a simple classic report. You can use apex_item functions in your query and later set your column attributes to "Standard Report Column". Basically, you are creating a updateable report.
