In asset data entry, the ENTER key functions like the TAB key - that is, it moves the cursor from field to field on a screen. In other windows and dialogs, pressing the ENTER key closes the window or dialog.

To have the ENTER key always function like it does in asset data entry (move from field to field), perform the following steps.

  1. In the Asset List window, choose Setup > User Preferences.
  2. Click the Miscellaneous tab.
  3. If it is not already marked, mark the Use enter key to move between fields checkbox.
  4. Click OK.
