problematic tabbing behavior on form

P: 1
I have a form with a number of subforms. I set up the tabbing behavior so that then the user tabs off the last control on a subform, rather than go to a new record on the subform, the focus goes to the first control on the next subsequent subform. I did this using setfocus on the the Exit event of the last control on the subform.

My problem is that when a user want to move the focus elsewhere when they are on that last control on the subform, i.e. clicking some other control, the cursor moves according to the exit event, not as the user expects.

How do I direct the focus thru the form without thwarting the user's ability to direct it elsewhere when desired?

This has got to a lot easier than I'm making it!! Any direction would be appreciated.

Why? What do you know that no-one else does?

Actually, you can add some complicated logic and key handling if you really want to, but it was never going to be straightforward.
