I want to make use of the Enter key to save data that is entered in user-screen without making use of the Save icon in the Toolbar which I have designed in the application.
How do I go about the same?
Pl explain in details ASAP since I'm a novice in Forms6i.

If you want to commit data, and even move to the next record, KEY-ENTER should look like this:
STANDARD.COMMIT;
NEXT_RECORD;


[EDIT] Maaher is right - Enter <> Commit.

However: there are situations when it is cozy to enable COMMIT on the Enter key. For example, when operator has to enter A LOT of records using the numeric keypad. It is inconvenient to enter numbers and search for F10, <Ctrl-S>, click the "Save" icon or whatever - it is much easier to map "Commit" to the "Enter" key.

[EDIT 2] Where did your message go, Maaher?!? You've just violated my foreign key constraint! ./fa/1599/0/
