    Thumbs down Duh!

    You need a semi-colon ( ; ) at the end of statement #4.

    But that's not all ...
    • "source" and "destination" miss the ":new." identifier
    • once you add them, trigger will fail because :new / :old aren't allowed in a table level triggers, so - add FOR EACH ROW
    • now trigger will compile, but an invalid combination of the source and destination column (Mumbai & NY) will end up with another error, because error number argument of the RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR is out of range - you, as a developer, are restricted to use values between -20000 and -20999

    Once you fix all of the above, trigger will do what it is supposed to.

    for one it appears a closing sing quote mark is missing (error of omission)
    DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE ('before insert of ;' ||;
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Anjala Please do not hijack a thread, start a new one. Yes, if code has an error it will give the compilation error message. Simply type

    show errors

    to see what is wrong.
