Table data entry, dialog win, and widget focus;

If I have a dialog box, with a multi-column table in
it, where the user can enter data directly into each
column, then...

the tab key should move the user from column to the
next column, and maybe, wrapped around, and Enter key
should go to the next row etc. (like a spreadsheet).
Correct?

However, when the user is done entering, a "natural"
instinct after using the keyboard to do data entry, is
to press Tab to hop to the OK button, and press Enter,
instead of using the mouse.

What is a conventional alternative to saying "OK" in
the dialog via keyboard?
