How do you get a module to run in a form. Here is the code that I have in a module "If (KeyAscii = 13) Then SendKeys "{TAB}"".  I don't want to type it everytime and want to call it from a procedure.

In the module define a function or sub-routine to do what you want to do...

Like this:

Public Sub WhichKeyWasPressed(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If KeyAscii = 13 Then
        SendKeys"{TAB}"
    End If
End Sub

You could also set KeyPreview to True on the Form and insert the following code:

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    Select Case KeyAscii
        Case 13
            SendKeys "{Tab}"
            KeyAscii = 0
    End Select
End Sub
