That is not the way Access works. The simplest way is to learn the way
Access works and "work with it" (or teach your users the way Access works so
they can "work with it").

What you describe is "working against Access" -- that always takes
additional effort and sometimes is not possible.

Please clarify the circumstances: "current" record displayed in a
single-form view, "current" record displayed in continuous forms view,
"current" record displayed in datasheet view (of table, of query)?

Do you intend to do all your control-to-control or field-to-field navigation
with the mouse? The enter key is usually used to navigate from control to
control in a form, to activate certain controls when they have the focus
(e.g., Command Buttons), or, optionally, to navigate from line to line
within a control.
