    Shortcut keystroke (2000/2002)

    I have a form containing numerous subforms which are displayed in datasheet view. The user is entering data in the mainform and into the first subform by tabbing to each field. When they reach the last field in the first subform, is there a way to enable the user to move to the next subform using a keystroke rather than having to use the mouse to click in the next subform?

    Ctrl+Tab will let the user tab out of a subform, to the next control in the tab order on the main form. You will have to make sure that the subforms are in the correct position in the tab order.

    You can also use a Macro to use "GoToControl".

    The help files give an explanation on how to do this.

    Thanks to both of you. I was able to use the Ctrl + tab to take me to the next subform and was then puzzling as to how to automatically get to the text tab in a tab control. By using a autokeys macro with a GoToControl action I can now accomplish this too. Thanks again.
