How do I trap the TAb keystroke?  The KeyDown event doesn't recognize vbKeyTab and KeyPress doesn't recognize KeyAscii = 9.

You have to use KeyPress() event, not KeyDown.

I tried that without success.  Do you have a snippet of working code?

This silly code will put at screen ASCII codes of the keys you type. And you can see the 9 for the TAB key:

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(K%)
Form1.Visible = True
Form1.AutoRedraw = True
?K%;
End Sub

You may should set the KEYPREVIEW = True for the Form load event.
