Change arrow key behaviour in contiguous forms

By different reasons I have chosen to use a contiguous form instead of datasheet. But I would prefer to have the same behaviour of the up and down arrow as in a datasheet. Meaning that down arrow should take me to the same field in the next record and up arrow move focus to the same field in the previous row/record. Can this be done? Appreciate any tips.

Each form's view property has its own features that may sometimes not applicable to other views. Your situation is one of the examples. So, it would be only either the continuous or the datasheet view.

However, you may try the VBA approach on the link below:

That might help.
