    Unanswered: Can't Tab Through the Fields on My Form Correctly

    Hey guys,

    I have a form that I generated directly from a table. I then built a couple additional combo boxes between those fields and also put in a subform.

    Normally when you start on the top field and press the tab key it puts the cursor into the field right below it.

    However, my problem is that the combo boxes I added after the fact do not seem to be acknowledged by the tab key. Also when I tab into my subform, it goes out of order (i.e. the bottom field gets focused before the top).

    Any clue as to how to control this behavior?

    Found it!
    I had to assign each field a "Tab Index" in the Properties sheet.

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