prevent row in datagrid from highlighting when clicking enter

I am using vb6 and in my form I have a datagrid.

A typical datagrid that pulls up from the database has all 0's in the cells.

When a user clicks on a cell to change the value to another numerical value, many users are pushing Enter on their keyboard and then the whole row becomes selected.  After they push Enter again, it resets the entire table to "0's" again.

Why is that happening and how can I prevent that from happening
