    Positioning of cursor (2000)

    Hello,

    I am trying to place the cursor in the first field in a form , see attachment.
    This appears to work in one form but not on the others,l cannot work out what l done in order for this to work.
    Also l would like the cursor to be placed on the second record if the 1st record is complete.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Justin

    1. The easiest way to ensure that the insertion point is in the first field on the form is to set the tab order. Open your form in design view, then select View | Tab Order... You can drag control names up and down in the list.

    2. Once you have set the tab order correctly, the insertion point will automatically move to the first field in the next record if the user tabs out of the last field of a record. (Exception: you can set the Cycle property of a form to Current Record instead of All Records if you want to prevent the user from tabbing out of a record; this only works in single and continuous forms, though, not in a datasheet.)

    Hans,

    I noticed what the problem was, the tab order specified to go to the close form command button first and not the sub form. This was why it worked in one form but not in the others.

    Thanks.
