    Default Auto advancing past required data field

    I'm new at this, so please bear with me. I've just finished designing a new form and in testing it I find that the cursor is auto advancing past a required data field. How do I correct this problem. I can't see that I did anything to program it to and if I did, I don't know where I did!

    Help!

    Do you mean the records on the form go past the end and creates a new blank record??
    If this is the case go to Form Properties and restrict "Continuous Enter".
    I hope this is what you are looking for. If not please be more explicit.

    Sorry, I mean that in the payment information part of my record entry form, I have three fields: date, method of payment and amount. I can tab my way to the date field, but when I tab again, I skip over the MOP field and go to the amount field. I need to enter the MOP too. What could be my problem?

    PS: You did bring up something though, how do I advance automatically to a new blank record entry form? With our last software, as soon as the last field in the current record was filled, we would hit enter and a new record form would appear.

    In form design, set the tab arrangement from the menu bar. You probably added fields to the form after many of the fields were already there.
