    Tab order in a form (Word 2000)

    I have a question about tab order in a form. If I want to skip a couple text fields in a form (jump out of sequence), and then tab back into order, I'm assuming I would need a VBA statement to do this. Would I bookmark the field I want to jump too, then place an "on exit" macro in the field that I am jumping from? And then place another one on the form I jumped to's "on exit" macro to jump back to the next sequenced field from the one I previously left? If so. How would I write the VBA statement to jump to bookmarked fields? Anybody have an easy answer on this one? Still working on this 5 page incident report, and this is just another snag thats caught me up. Appreciate any VBA suggestions, or anyother options except hitting SHIFT TAB to back up. As always, I'm so indebted to all you great "gurus".

    Thanks guys, but kept on hunting and found the answer here:
    http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/TblsFl...oFormField.htm
    and the code is set up like:
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("Text4").Range.Fields(1). Result.Select
    Much thanks to you all. Hope this helps others.
