    Default Restructuring a table

    I read the HELP file on Restructuring a Table and see how simple this is. I do have a question that is not answered in the file and think I know the answer.

    In the current table I have built, everything is in order so that as the form is populated, I can use the tab function to jump to the next field in line. If I edit the table structure and add a field between existing fields, it seems that this is the last field I can tab to. Is this correct and if so, how can I work around it?

    My initial thougth is if it is true, I should be able to use an Action Script to jump to this new field and then back to the one which comes next. Make sense?

    Example of fields on form and in table, which are in order.

    First Name: Middle Name: Last Name:

    Now I want to add two fields like this.

    First Name: Nick Name: Middle Name: Last Name: Suffix:

    and be able to tab straight through the line.

    You can set the tab order on a form with the Arrange menu, Set Tab Order.
