Hi Experts...Im using MS access. Im trying to get a sub procedure to run if the enter key is pressed while the form is open. I have the below code to try and capture when the Enter key is pressed. It then is supposed to run the mousedown event of a label
(which Im using instead of a button). The label is called "LblLogin", so the mousedown event will run if the label is clicked on, or if the enter key is pressed....any help would be greatly appreciated.

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyASCII As Integer)
If KeyASCII = 13 Then
KeyASCII = 0
LblLogin_MouseDown
Else
End If
End Sub

why dont you create a new sub to do whatever you are trying to do:

Private Sub DoStuff()
  'Put all your code here
End Sub

Then, from your "LblLogin_MouseDown" just call "DoStuff", same with "Form_KeyPress"
Eg:

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyASCII As Integer)
If KeyASCII = 13 Then
KeyASCII = 0
DoStuff
End If
End Sub
0
