Greetings most learned experts,

I have heard that you can tab from one field to the next and when the cursor lands in the next field the value in that field is highlighted. It would save time in updating that data if you didn't have to highlight the value yourself and then clear the field. Is this possible? Thank you.

In the field properties box, you can enter the number in Tab Key .

And popping up values by default applies only for Keyword fields.

If you want this to work, you'd have to use the Entering event of that field. The code would need to
- get a handle on the current field,
- select all

notesrookie,

Adding to sjef's comment, if this is a notes client, then the field's enter event can be scripted to highlight the field contents.

Sub Entering(Source As Field)
    Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
    Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
    Set uidoc = ws.currentdocument
   
    If uidoc.EditMode Then
        uidoc.SelectAll
    End If    
   
End Sub

"Implementing" seems the more appropriate word... ;)
