Upon entering a form, I thought the Tab key was supposed to cause the focus to the first field in the tab order.

In my installation of Base 2.0 this does not happen. Pressing the Tab key with focus on no field results in nothing. If I use the mouse to put the focus on a field, then Tab will cycle through the fields as it should.

What can I do to make the Tab key enter the first field in the tab order?

Thank you very much.

The form has a setting Automatic Control Focus.

You access it by opening the Form Navigator from Form Design toolbar.

Right click on the Form item itself (the very first) you will see the setting. Select it.
Save your form. The form should now open with the cursor in the first control on the form.

Gee whiz! Thanks again Drew.

I thought I had done that but I guess I was wrong.
