stop going to next record when user presses the enter key

I have a form that has lots of sub forms on it. The user shouldn't be editing the information that isn't part of the sub forms, and the fields are locked... but when a user presses return/enter - access seemingly progresses onto the next record for the parent form (and at the end it just goes to create a new record).


How can I stop access from going to the next record when they press enter?


Thanks.

Hi

Have you tried looking at the 'Cycle' property in the 'Other' tab on the Form Properties dialogue?
