Problem Statement
We have enabled a line level Descriptive Flexfield (DFF) in standard shipment Receipt (DFF: Receiving Transactions).
When a user enters values in the page and mistakenly press Next Item button instead of Done button the page allows user to directly jump to Done button in the next page when Enter is pressed on item field.
This works fine when no line level DFF is enabled but after we enabled the DFF users cannot directly navigate to Done button if they press Next Item mistakenly.
The page throws an error saying MWA_FLEX_EMPTY.

MWA_FLX_EMPTYFLEX_MSG. Press any key to continue.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Org:
    Create IOT: with 2 Lines in 2 orgs with 2 Items

  2. Select Org
    Navigate to Whse Mgmt -> Inbound -> Receive -> Int Ship
    Enter Ship Num

  3. Enter the required information for receiving 1st Line (1st Item)

  4. DFF is not entered and Next Item button is pressed.

  5. In the next page, press Enter on item field to move to Done button and the error comes.

Due to this issue, users cannot return the previous page if mistakenly Next Item button is pressed.
