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 write
public sub ButtonClick(KeyAscii)
If (KeyAscii = 13) Then SendKeys "{TAB}"
end sub

in your keydown event on every form write
ButtonClick(KeyAscii)

First you can always 'copy and paste' code.  This has become one of my favorite helpful tips for coding.

Second, the KeyDown event doesn't give you the Ascii code for the key pressed it's in the KeyPress event.

Third, you should be able to call it like anything else.

IN FORM:
Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    MyProcedure KeyAscii
End Sub

IN MODULE:
Public Sub MyProcedure(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If (KeyAscii = 13) Then SendKeys "{TAB}"
End Sub
