Execute Command Button click event when pressing ENTER in a text box

P: 5
Access 2000
Windows XP

I have a small form with two text boxes:
- User ID
- Password

The form also has two command buttons:
- Login
- Cancel

I would like to set things up so the user can type in his/her ID, click Tab and enter his/her password, then simply press ENTER to login. Right now, when I press ENTER the form sets the focus on the Login button, but I have to press ENTER a second time to execute the click event for that button.

Can this be done?

Sure! In Design View for the form, select the Login Button the goto Properties Sheet - Other and set the Default Property to Yes. Any time the <Enter> key is pressed, no matter where the focus is, the Login Button will fire.
