    Default Tab Order

    I'm new to Alpha Software. How do I control the tab order on a form (tabbing from one field to another)?

    Open your form in design mode, then from the menu Arrange --> Set Tab Order.

    Thanks, Gaby. I'm converting from Approach. It'll take some time to become oriented with Alpha 5.

    Del, welcome to the message board. If you haven't found the User's Guide in the Help system, it's located on the Contents tab. The chapter on Form Design includes a detailed section called "Setting the Tab Order".

    Thanks, Tom. Believe it or not I hadn't noticed the User Guide in the help system; I was using the Search function instead and having difficulty finding my solution. Perhaps I should slow down a bit and carefully peruse what's available.
