In default arrow keys can change the record means if we are putting a record and press down arrow key cursor goes to next record and status bar shows record status like 1/1 , 2/2.
Now I want that arrow keys could not changes the record only they work like return key when I press down key it move the cursor in down and when i press up key cursor goes to up.

at least I have 60 items on forms.

It would help if your keyboard had punctuation keys so that you could have used them. Reading what you've just written, I see no difference at all.

By default, UP and DOWN go up and down.
Now you want that UP and DOWN go up and down.


Although I can't understand your question, you might take a look at the KEY-UP and KEY-DOWN triggers and put any code you wish into them (even restricted procedures).

Are you trying to change the 'Navigation Style'? Have a look at that property of a Forms 'block'.

just do two simple steps
1. create key-down trigger at form level and write next_item;
2. create key-up trigger similarly and write previous_item;
it will give it normal functionality of up arrow and down arrow
