MS Access Form OnKeyDown Event with Text Boxes Not Working Properly

Hello,

So I have a form that filters records in the top section based what information is filled into  combo and text boxes.

I have added an OnKeyDown event to each of these combo and text boxes and when I press the Enter key after putting in one of the values into the combo boxes, it works perfectly. However, when I press the Enter key after puttin in one of the values into the text boxes, it tabs over to the next box and then I would have to press Enter a 2nd time for it to begin the query.

I am kind of figuring out VBA a little through working with it in this form. Can you please let me know what I would have to do for it to work properly (that is, press Enter key on any of the boxes in top section and have it filter the results in the subform)??

I believe I have figured it out.....

If I change the Forms command button DEFAULT property to YES, it will work, but let me test this first.......
