Navigation button inactive

P: n/a
Access2k.
Form is bound to data with query. When the focus in on one of three
controls, the form refuses to move to another record using navigation
buttons. Also it is impossible to use Filter by Form.
These controls are all provided with events, BeforeUpdate, onExit and
onDoubleClick. They are also colored green!
If the focus is on any other control bar these three, including one
colored green(!), it all works.
Since one of these controls has the focus when the form is loaded - and
I want it that way - the user has to move away from that control before
being able to operate.

Has any one a solution to this very frustrating problem, please?

Thanks

I doubt if the color Green has anything to do with your problem. It may
have something to do with the code in the onExit...or BeforeUpdate if
you have a Cancel in the code that gets executed.
