Arrow down from One line to the next on continuous form

I have a continuous form in my application that is set up to enter repetative data.

There are five fields across the screen with "Account' being the first.

I have it set up to automatically carry all but the account information from the prior line to each new line that is entered.

The user has requested to be able to go from the account field on one line directly to the account on the next line by pressing the arrow down key.  I know I have done this in the past for other users but I don't remember how.

I know there is a property on the form that must be set but can't remember the details.

How do I provide the users with this ability?

Add the following code to a module:
Function KeyUpDown(ByRef vKeycode As Variant) As Boolean
    On Error Resume Next
    If vKeycode = vbKeyDown Then
        DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNext
    Else If vKeycode = vbKeyUp Then
        DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acPrevious
    End If
End Function

Open in new window

Then add OnKeyUp and OnKeyDown events to each of the fields in your continuous form and put this code in their procedures:
Call KeyUpDown(KeyCode)
