ok i have a a table, lets say 6 colums by 5 rows it looks like:-
            A             B           C             D                E                      F
          code                    Title                          Name
          Address1                                             DOB
          Address2                                             Height
          Address3
         Zip      

What I want is when users are tabbing between fields, they do so in a logical order ie, enter code, then title then name, thats bits fine as Tab will go accross in that order, but when you get to row 2, it would be logical to enter the address and zip lines rather than have the DOB and Height input between them, is there an easy way to do this in dreamwever, ASP pages ?
Thanks
Gary

IF you are coding your table manually you can use the TABINDEX property, which is just a HTML feature.
I'm not sure if DW supports it but it should be somewhere in the properties panel.

Here is some more information on how you do it directly using HMTL:
