    Disable Enter Key on subform

    I have a subform which has 3 textbox fields, each textbox has an associated search button for searching the text in the associated textbox.

    Ideally it would be nice to have the enter key work on the textbox that has focus to activate the code behind the associated search button but I don't think that's possible?

    If I could disable the Enter key and force the user to use the associated search button that would be fine.

    Why 3 buttons? Why not just one button? Or use each textbox AfterUpdate event - that would be triggered when Enter key is pressed. Have a single procedure that constructs the filter criteria and call that procedure from as many events as you want. Review
