have you seen the option "Tools - OpenOffice Calc - General - Press 
Enter to move selection"? Here you can choose the direction. The best 
whould be to make it customizable the Tab key as well.

Preferred alternative:
Move to the right is what I would expect. Thats what I understand how 
the Tab key should work. Also in Writer it moves the cursor to the right.

Also possible:
Move it like the Return key (default is "move down").

My 2 ct.
