Does .enable = false change the tabindex order?

P: n/a
Moving from a text box to a combobox where the text box validate sub
sets the text box enable to false the combobox "lights up" indicating
it has focus, but the gotfocus does not fire and when I tab out of the
combobox it's validate is not performed. Also if I back tab in the
combo box it does not return to the text box but goes off to another
control on the screen. If I take out the disabling of the text box
everything is fine.

Beats me. I'll just work around it.

Disabling an object only takes the object out of the "list of places to tab
to".
....note the TabIndex value of the objects while enabled, and while disabled.
