Prevent current record scrolling to next record whilst using tab key

Hi all,

I have many forms to enter jobs into my database.  Generally I am using the Tab key to move through my Main form and SubForms and at the end I move back to the MainFrom to indicate via a tickbox if the job is complete.

However sometimes if I tab too many times the record moves on to the next record and I have put a Button on my form to add a new record.  Is there a way in which I can stop my forms from scrolling to the next record and force the user to use the New Record button.

thanks

In your form set the .Cycle property (Other tab) to Current Record.

Hope this helps.
