Set the KeyPreview to true on the form
On the key down event
   If KeyCode = 13 Then
      KeyCode = 0
      SendKeys "{TAB}"
   End If

I added this comment to the bottom of your reposted question.  It works better than monkeying around with the button as recomended by caraf_g

The beeb is due to windows determiniting that they key pressed in the control is invalid.  This is triggered prior to the key press event being fired
The problem with the default button is that it eliminates the key_down event on the form and fires the buttons clicked event.

The work around is to set the multiline property for the controls to true and then move the code to the key_press event...

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
   If KeyAscii = 13 Then
      KeyAscii = 0
      SendKeys "{TAB}"
   End If
End Sub
