When I tab on the lower portion of a form, the form scrolls up

P: n/a
I have a form that is longer than the screen height. If I am positioned
on the form, where I have had to scroll down a bit. When I press tab
the form scrolls up so that the current location of the cursor is not
visible. If I manually use the scroll bar to position so I can see the
cursor and press tab again, it again scrolls up to almost the top of the
form.

why??

This happens only when there is a subform

It happens only when tabbing between checkboxes.
If I tab between text boxes, no incorrect scrolling occurs.

the problem is that if the screen has already scrolled down
to display the checkbox, when I click on the tab key to move to the next
checkbox, the screen scrolls up almost to the top of the page.
If I manually scroll down, the cursor is at the proper check box.

If I press tab key again, the screen again scrolls up but the cursor
moves to the correct checkbox - it is just that I can no longer see this.

I was able to reproduce this in a small form. The tabbing without
scrolling worked fine on a single form. When I embedded the same form
into another, the problem "unwanted scrolling" resulted.

Help!!
