Tab Within MS Flexgrid in Access 97

I have placed a flexgrid on an access form with a text box that should move from cell to cell, the text box will allow my users to 'change' the data in the grid. I referenced MS KB article #241355 for instructions on doing this. Everything appears to work fine except for one thing. I cannot tab out of the text box once it is activated, I must click another cell with the grid to move the focus.  

I have registered the FM20.DLL and have referenced the Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library. One thing that I notice is this, in design view if I right click my text box (my text box is the activeX textbox) and choose TEXTBOX OBJECT - EDIT I get a screen that says "The operation on the textbox object failed. The OLE server may not be registered. To register the OLE server reinstall it."

Is anyone familiar with the use of flexgrids and textboxes in access?

Thanks,
Jessi

I have used flexgrids and just the regular textbox, using the location of the cell, I position the texbox and make it visible
When textbox has lost focus then I take the value of the textbox, assign it to the flexgrid and hide the textbox

I never used the ActiveX textbox

With regards to your problem, I dont know if registering via regsvr2 will do the trick


in dos do

regsvr32 <name of activex file>
