I'm not aware of any way of catching keys except the KEY-xxx triggers and you can only catch function keys like that. I tried to do it and Oracle said somthing to the effect of it can't be done. I looked at directly catching windows messages, and relaying them to forms, but it doesn't seem to be possible to talk to forms in any way.

You might be able to do it programmatically with VB and interface to forms 5 if it isn't possible native in 5.

Sorry much help really.
