Strange behaviour in Access 2000/Win 2000

P: n/a

I have an odd problem.

When in frmOrderDetails, which is a sub form on frmOrders, I try to
make a new orderline, the following occurs:

The first field, ItemID (a combobox), is being used to choose an
item from tblItems. However, when using 'TAB' to go to next field, the
cursor jumps all the way to the top, that is the first ItemID
recorded. This is only when there are two or more orderlines in

Now, I checked the settings in the preference sheet and in the
'OPTION' settings, but I can't seem to find any logic to this

This behaviour just recently occurred with no warning!

Any suggestion or experience with this one?
Happy programming,

You might want to specify a little more. I don't know what you mean by

subform or the parent form? Is the form a continuous form? Is it a

Check the options on the combobox. Under the "Other" tab look at the
"Tab Index." A number 0 through whatever denotes the order in which
the TAB key cycles through each item in that form. Use 0 for the
first, 1 for the second, 2 for the third, etc..
