How to limit keys that interact with buttons?

n my solution, when users enter data and press ‘Return’, another script checks entries for validity; if incorrect, the user must fix them before proceeding.  However, if ‘Enter’ (or ‘function’ + ’Return’) is pressed instead of either clicking the button or pressing ’Return’, error checking ceases and the main script continues regardless of errors!


Likewise if a user presses ‘Command period’ instead of clicking the Cancel button (a typical shortcut), instead of continuing to clean up and return home, my Cancel script quits.


I desperately need to set some buttons so only ‘Return’ works (and not ‘Enter’), and others so ‘Command period’ acts like a keypress of the Cancel button, or the keystroke is inactivated.


Many computers will use the database, so keyboard remapping is out.


Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
