Data entry in a form using key strokes only

I have 2 groups of users.  One group uses the mouse frequently and a 2nd group that likes to use key strokes and minimizes the use of the mouse.

I have a screen with multiple data grids, combo boxes, and buttons.  half of the grids are read only and all of the grids are not updated within the grid.  Data is brought out updated and put back in the grid and database during the process.  I'm trying to set up to better accomodate users who don't like using the mouse.

My question:

How can I make an event fire on a enter key.  I know that I can test for keys.enter but for example:  How would I fire a mouseClick event?

How could I press the combo box and get the cbo to open on enter key or the clicking of the drop down.

To force a combo box to appear open, set the DroppedDown property to True. To fire a mouseClick event, first define the event handler for that event. Then call the event handler directly.
