    Tabbing to Yes/No field (2002)

    When tabbing to yes/no fields on a form screen, how do you control the visual indicator to show which field you are on? In the past I have noticed that sometimes the label shows a broken line around it and sometimes the border of the checkbox itself appears bold. But in the form screen I am currently working with there is nothing to show which field you have tabbed to.

    Does the behavior persist if you quit and restart Access, or even your PC? You should see a dotted border around the label if the check box has an attached label, or around the check box itself if it hasn't.

    I tried turning off my computer then reopened my database but the form behaved the same way. You gave me an idea with your reply so I deleted the label and created a label that was not attached to the checkbox and now the checkbox does have a current field indicator around the checkbox.
