This sounds as if you're trying to change the Tab Order from the Property Pane which, if I remember correctly, from that version, cannot be done. It has to be done so that all Tab Orders are changed at the same time. In other words, you cannot select a Control, go to the Properties for that Control, and change its Tab Order from 6 to 7, because another Control already has a Tab Order of 7.

And when you're done, remember to hit the OK or Save button in the Tab Order dialog box.
Hope this helps!
The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
