    Unanswered: Tab stop within textbox?

    I've been searching but can't find any references to setting a tab stop within a text box. Anyone know if it's possible?

    Regards

    I don't think it is possible in a standard Acc ess text box. it may be possible if you use a rich text box control in place, but that introduces a whole other set of problems, especially if you want to deploy the application onto several desktops.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Oddly enough, in Access 2000, if you put "Tab Key Behaviour" into the Help box it'll direct you to the help item that includes "Change Tab behaviour" and directs you to goto Tools -> Options -> Keyboard, which then, of course, offers no way to modify the Tab Key actions! Just another of Access' quirky habits!
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
