Default Forms / Tables

I've created a form but want to restrict the user from when he pressed
enter/return it starting a new line, I've set the max amount of text they
can enter but if they press return it starts a new line.

I have the same problem in tables I've fixed the size of the table to
restrict the user entering to much info, but if you use return it messes it
up!

Thanks

Mark

Put the form field in a table cell of fixed height and width. It won't stop
the user entering too much information, but the extra information will
disappear off screen and give the user some indication that he has entered
too much.

Silly question!

Is there any way of disabling the enter/return command?

Regards

Mark

Microsoft has a macro that does this:
