    A Couple of Quick Questions! (2000)

    Hi Folks

    Hopefully someone can help with these two problems ...

    1. I have an Access form with a Tab Control. This allows me to split my table up into different sections on the form - nice and handy. However, whenever I open the form (View) the screen shunts down to the first field and I have to scroll back up to be able to click on my tab controls. Is it possible to have tab 1 as the default point where the screen stops?
    2. Is there a simple object I can add to my form that shows a total count of the number of records. I realise I can just look at the bottom of the screen but I'd like a text box with big red letters telling me how many records there are.

    Thanks for any help,

    1. Change the TabIndex property of the entire tab control to 0.

    2. create a textbox (probably want to put it in form footer, and for it's controlsource, use: =Count(*)
