You MUST modify your oracle forms resource file. On Windows systems in the US it is named fmrusw.resn. It must reside in the directory where your fmx files are found. The only way to modify this file is with the Oracle Terminal program. And each of your users will need a copy of the file once it is created. Also, once you change your resource file, your Key-F2 trigger will work in every form that defines such a trigger. But without the key trigger in the form, nothing will happen when the user presses the key.

Good luck -- Oracle Terminal is not the easiest program to use.

Hope this helps,
