Button Shortcut Keys

Shortcut Key, Default, Cancel Properties for Buttons
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to push command buttons on your forms using the Default and Cancel properties. I'll also show you how to create your own keyboard shortcut keys and assign them to buttons.
Aaron from Jupiter, Florida (a Platinum Member) asks: I have a form that I'm constantly opening to perform data entry, and then when I'm done, I have to stop, grab the mouse, click a close button, and repeat. It would be great if I could do all of that without having to break my stride on the keyboard to grab the mouse. Can we open and close forms using just keystrokes?
Members are going to learn how to close a form using Ctrl-Enter, which is the standard for website forms today. We'll use some fancy VBA with KeyPreview, KeyDown, KeyCode, and learn about Bitmasks.
