This seems simple but I cannot get my head around it!!!!!

I have an On Exit in a s/f to bring me to a control on my m/f and to the next record, and back into my s/f.
On the 1st record, it seems to be taking 3 tabs to get it to trigger to the m/f.

Is there a way I can speed that up?
And an even bigger help to know = What is the running during this time?
(It doesn't happen on the 2nd or all subsequent records)

(sorry - I can post code tomorrow if needed I already c&r'd and backed-up today....gotta get out of here!)
