Cancel enter key on the after update event

When I hit the enter key in a field the after update event is triggered and form with a listview opens. I want first row in listview to have focus when it's open but that creates a problem. It's seems like the keycode from the enter key  still comes to action and automatically select the first row in listview and the form closes.  Can I someway trap or cancel the behavior from the enter key? I have tried to set the keycode to 0, but its look like the enter key comes to play after all code is done.

Afterupdate code:

Private Sub SlakteDato_AfterUpdate()
Dim stDocName As String
    
    stDocName = OppslagsForm
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, acNormal, , , , acWindowNormal    
    
End Sub

Open in new window


Form with listview is named "OppslagsForm"
In the load event of this form I have this code:
Private Sub Form_Load()
    
    Call FillListView1
    lstListView1.SetFocus 'Focus on first row in listview

End Sub

Open in new window


When row is selcted by doubleclick or enter I Close the form and to some other stuff. My problem is that the enter stroke that triggered the afterupdate event comes to use and select the first row in the listview as soon as the listview formed is opened and thereby close it at once.

I'm this this event/code to close form:
Private Sub lstListView1_KeyUp(KeyCode As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer)
    If KeyCode = 13 Then
    	DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmSlakteregistreringOppslagDisp"
	... some action
                  ... more action
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

You can use the KeyDown
Private Sub lstListView1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

try

* set the Forms Key Preview property to Yes (in the Event tab) of the form
* use the Form event

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
If KeyCode = 13 Then KeyCode =0

End sub

Tried your solutions, but same problem no matter what. Solved it by using a private variable so that I could controll the first key event after opening of the form.
