In the design view of the form look at the menu:

View>Tab Order

If you want the cursor in the control named InvoiceDate whenever you move to
a new record, add this to the Current event procedure of the form:

Private Sub Form_Current()
If Me.NewRecord Then
Me.[InvoiceDate].SetFocus
End If
End Sub
