Complex Tab Order - Tip

When you have finished most of the work on an Access form, you need to fix up the Tab Order or people will jump around fields in your form. Usually you would do this with the Tab Order wizard or use Auto Tab. If you have too much of a scrambled order, view the Other Tab in the Properties of your field(s). enterthe correct tab order number into the Tab Index property. Access moves all the fields from that index number further down the order.  So now you can move around the form typing 1,2,3,4, etc. manually till you get to the last field.  Much quicker than the Tab Order wizard.
