Access 2007: Changing Control Tab Order

After you’ve re-designed a form such as adding or deleting controls and moving controls around, the original tab order often no longer fits. On any form, you can control the order in which a user moves throughout a form when they press the [TAB] key.

Changing the Tab Order

     
  1. Open a form in Design View
     
  2.  
  3.  Choose the Tab Order command in the Control Layout group on the Form Design Tools Arrange Contextual tab
