I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to easily set the tab stops on a Base form? I know in MS Access that I have set all of them in order with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. So far I havent found a way to do all of them at the same time with Base. I have a form with over 100 text/numerical/combo/list boxes and I would like to know how to set those stops without re designing the whole form. I have also tried forcing the stops in the control portion of each box and that didnt work very well. One more thing I would like to see is some well designed forms by some of you that know Base better than myself. I want to see more capabilities of Base than what I already know of. Thnaks alot. Just PM me on the form designs and I will try to work with you privately on them if they do not need to be made public.

Click on form navigator on form control toolbox (if know well, I use hungarian version now) right click on Main form, and you could find Tab order...

I am new to base an am trying to set up a form.
I am having problems with the tab button.
When pushing tab, the curser does not go to the next field but jumps around. How do I change the order for which the tab goes next?

When editing a form, I found the navigator (star symbol) but I can not find "Main form" in the navigator.

Move fields into up and down until reach desired order:

I got it working. Wink
You don't know how many hours I spent trying to get this to work.
I clicked on the Navigator star at the top of the screen and this does not provide tab order.
