Making the Enter Key Work Like a Tab

To allow the Enter key to function as a Tab, enter this code in the KeyPress event of your text boxes:
 Sub Text1_KeyPress (KeyAscii As Integer) 
If KeyAscii = 13 Then 'Enter 
SendKeys "{Tab}" 
KeyAscii = 0 
End If 
End Sub 
This allows the user to press Enter to move from one text box to the next. This technique will not work if you have a command button on the form whose default property is True. The button will respond to the Enter key before the text box sees it.
