      Dear Team,

      exit key is not working .

      in exit button i had return a code

      exit_form(no_validate);

          Try this
          go_block ('block_name');
          Clear_Block(No_Validate); 
          exit_form;
          hope this helps

            still it is getting error

            and giving system generated message as Date must be entered in a format like DD/MM/RRRR

              Hi.

              Where is your exit_form(no_validate) code? Is it on push button's when-button-pressed trigger. If so try to set the property of button's "Mouse Navigable" and "Keyboard Navigable" value to No. That way the validation of date field should not happen.

              Best regards.
