You should be able to create an event handler method on the button's OnClick event. Inside that method, I believe you could use the "__LASTFOCUS" property to determine which textbox had focus when the button was pressed, and subsequently set the focus to the other text box.
protected void OnClick_EventHandler(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string ctrlName = page.Request.Params.Get("__LASTFOCUS");
    Control ctl = Page.FindControl(ctrlName);
 
    if(ctl.GetType() == typeof(TextBox))
    {
        // Here you could make sure the TextBox control
        // is in fact one of the two you wanted, then
        // set the other textbox's focus property
        OtherTextBox.Focus();
    }
}

Since the enter button will be pressed when the user is in the textbox, should the code not be on the textbox textchanged event.

Yes, valid point. I guess an even simpler option would be to simply check which text box has data in it inside the event handler and set the other control's focus.

So

if(!String.Empy(TextBoxOne.Text))
{
    TextBoxTwo.Focus();
}
else
    TextBoxOne.Focus();

Would something like that achieve your goal?
