Sudhanshu,

Is it necessary for you to work in Forms 3.0?

Go to the Oracle Forms website and download the oldest erference manual you can find. You will find that the when-validate-item trigger can only use 'SELECT' statements, and 'unrestricted' built-ins. Unfortunately, go_field is a 'restricted' built-in.

In your 'on-validate-field' set a control item or global to the name of the field to which you wish to jump and in the 'key-nxtfld' test to see if that global is 'null'. If not 'null' then store it locally, remove the value from the global and then do a 'go_field' using the locally stored value.

I've found SQL*Forms (version 3.0) Quick Designer's Reference book (printed copy). Now that you know it's name, perhaps Google will return something if you search for it.
