In the sample application I made, I have both grid and form panels. In both cases the enter key does not take the user to the next column. Tab key does. However, in a fast data entry situation enter key is very important to take the cursor to the next column. Also people are used to press the enter key after entering something. That's how the name came to be called ENTER. Is there any way to make formspider to use enter key also to take the cursor to next column?

I remember having this discussion with my users when they switched from the old operational system to the current one. People told me that the system was unusable without ENTER to navigate between fields... Few weeks later, everybody was used to it, and nobody ever raised the issue again.
My advice is not to go that way. I don't even think it is possible within Formspider to use ENTER instead of tab (or at least it will cause lots of headaches) just make it a training issue. Formspider is not Oracle Forms, it will have some things that users will have to get used to. This ois one of those things.
