How is it possible to set the focus to the next control in the tabindex list, without using Sendkeys "{TAB}" or other ugly patches?

It depends on the control, but in most cases you can use .SetFocus.

For example.  With Text1 as a textbox  -

Text1.SetFocus

Will set the focus to your textbox.

If this doesn't work, please include more specific information.

Thanks.

I tried this it worked perfect

Private Sub SetFocusToNextControl()

Dim CurrentControl As Control, NextControl As Control

'Get currently focused control
Set CurrentControl = Me.ActiveControl


If CurrentControl.TabIndex = Me.Controls.Count Then
    'If the Last control is the active one
    'set the next one to be any other one
    Set NextControl = Me.Controls(4)
Else
    'This portion sets the nextControl to
    'the next control in the tab list
    For i = 0 To Me.Controls.Count - 1
        Set NextControl = Me.Controls.Item(i)
        If NextControl.TabIndex = CurrentControl.TabIndex + 1 Then Exit For
    Next
End If

'Finally setting the focus
NextControl.SetFocus

End Sub

Enjoy :))

Hmmm... I was asking for a command which would have done the thing, since it was actually the way I was doing it myself.  It was what I was calling "patch"...
So, must I conclude there is no true way to do it, instead of making a loop and trying everything?
I guess I would accept your answer anyway...
