How do I change client settings for Access Runtime

Can anyone tell me how I can change the 'Client Settings' on a machine running the Microsoft Access Runtime?

I need to move to the next record after pressing the enter key rather than moving to the next field. However the 'Options' page isn't displayed  in the Runtime version.

  You need to set any options via code and your own interface if you want to expose that to the user.
  In this case you'd use the setoption method of the application object:

Application.SetOption("Move After Enter") = value

  Where value is don't move (0), next field (1),  or next record (2)
