Tabbing between subforms

P: 47
I have a form with four subforms on it.

Somehow or other, when I tab all the way through the list of tab stops on subform 1, it moves to subform 2. But the same thing doesn't work between any of the other subforms.

But I never inserted any code to make this work! Magic!

My question is how do I set up a tab order so that users can tab from one subform to another?

I don't really know about SubForm controls in particular, but arranging tabbing is generally done using the properties TabStop & TabIndex.

If you Right-click on a tabbable control, you will also get the option Tab Order .... From this you can arrange the orders.

NB. Each form has it's own sort order, so the actual subform may be in one position relative to the overall form, yet within the embedded form there is another set.
