Customizing the use of the ENTER key

Show expandable text

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

To have the ENTER key always function as it does in input screens (move from field to field):

  1. From the Setup menu, choose User Preferences.
  2. If it is not already marked, mark the Use enter key to move between fields checkbox in the Data Entry tab.
  3. Click OK.
