When a use enters a value in a specific text box and presses the Enter key, how can I have it proceed without the user actually pressing the cmdSubmit button?

I tried the OnEnter event, but it just tabs over to the next text box.

For example, if a user enters a user ID in a text box and then clicks on OK, how can I have it so that they only need to press on the <Enter> key instead of clicking on the OK button?

I hope this makes more sense.
