Disable the Enter key in MS Access 2002

P: n/a
Hello,

How do I disable the Enter key so that it does not generate a new
blank form when I hit the Enter key? I tried Tools - Options -
KeyBoard: select "Don't Move" in "Move After Enter" section but it did
not work. Access Help talked about a property called
"EnterKeyBehavior" but it seems like it only applies to a field.

Please help,
James

Set the form's Cycle property to CurrentRecord.

Thanks for responding, Ken. I tried the value for Cycle property as
you said but it did not work. Any other suggestion?

Thanks in advance,

Where is the focus when you press Enter key? Give us some info about what is
on the form, its Recordsource, etc.
