allow tab key in select case for ascii vba

i'm having an issue that when a person presses a  <tab> key going from textbox to textbox,

The code below is firing off in the next textbox in the tab order. even though I have not pressed keys in that next textbox yet  ?

The event i have it on is..
Private Sub QUOTE_GP_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

Select Case True 'always your best friend
    Case (KeyAscii > 47 And KeyAscii < 58)
    Case (KeyAscii = 8)
    Case (KeyAscii = 43)
    Case (KeyAscii = 45)
    Case (KeyAscii = 46)
    Case Else
      '  MsgBox ("quote gp You Must Enter Numbers Only!")
        KeyAscii = 0
        Exit Sub
End Select

Open in new window

That actually makes sense.  The tab key is being passed to the control that has the focus.  I find the keypress event to be more trouble than it is worth and it is not the appropriate event for your purpose anyway.

If you want to trap each key as it is typed into a control, use the control's On Change event.
