I need to tab into a calculated field from a script, it seems that one can add calculated fields to the tab order, you can click on it with a mouse and "get there" but you cannot tab into it ..

No need to change any information in it, just tab into it.

Any ideas ?

You cant enter data into a calculation field which is why you cant tab to it. If you try to enter data by clicking on the field and entering data you will get a warning dialog. Tabbing to fields is purely there for quick data entry and again, since you cant enter data in a calculation field, you cant tab there. Im guessing you want to tab there to copy the data from the field? Might want to hide the calculated field, create a new field that is not a calculated field but mirrors it. So the calculated field data shows up in the new field, which you can then tab to.
