How to submit form when enter is pressed using ajax request instead of button

I have included below my ajax function call and my html form.  Right now it submits the form when button is pressed but how can I submit the form with the enter key instead?


function loadXMLDoc(symbol,year,month,day,endyear,endmonth,endday)
{
var xmlhttp;

if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
  {// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
  xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
  }
else
  {// code for IE6, IE5
  xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
  }
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
  {
  if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)
    {
    document.getElementById("myDiv").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
    }
  }
 
xmlhttp.open("POST","test.php?s="+symbol+"&y="+year+"&m="+month+"&d="+day+"&ey="+endyear+"&em="+endmonth+"&ed="+endday+"&date="+new Date().getTime(),true);
xmlhttp.send();
}


This is the form:

<form action="" >
                           
         
<?php        
      $html = " ";


$html .= "      <table style='text-align:center; font-size:14px; width:500px;' id='tablesorter' class='tablesorter' border='1' cellpadding='0' cellspacing=''>
              <tr style='width:200px;'>
                <td style='background-color:#e6EEEE; text-align:left'>Enter Symbol:</td>
                <td><input height='30' size=35 name='symbol'></input></td>

            </tr>

        <tr style='width:200px;'>

        </tr>      
        <tr>
            <td style='background-color:#e6EEEE; text-align:left;'>End Date:</td>
