 Tab order in online data-entry form?

Hi Line,

Using macros on exit from formfields you can get the selection to move to a
particular field:

ActiveDocument.Formfields("Text3").Select

The only thing is, the field does not appear to be selected, especially if
the field shading is turned on, when it can be difficult to see exactly
where the selection is.

Please post any follow-up or new questions to the Newsgroups so that others
may benefit therefrom or contribute thereto.

Hope this helps,
Doug Robbins - Word MVP

Try setting the TabIndex properties to the order you want.  You do
this in the properties window when you are in the form design mode.

G'luck,
