kierwright,

Set the TabIndex property of that control to Zero (0)

Or, us code like this on the form's Open Event

Sub YourForm_Open()
    Me.YourTextBox.SetFocus
End sub

This is a very basic question.

Do you have a good reference book on MS Access yet?

My Recommendations:

Access 2003 Bible:

Access 2003 , step by step
