Try setting the values again, without missing any control whether label or groupbox or so.

On a safer side you can start numbering the first control at 100 or so (the number which has never been used)

So you say that to start from 100, 101,102.. will work out..!

Also for ALL the labels, i kept 0

as far the numbering is in order it should work. Multiple controls with same index may break the loop. Try not to repeat. I'm suggest start value as 100 so that your old numbering gets cleared off. There's not harm if you wish to start from 1 again.

My guess is that you have multiple controls with the same order.  VS2005 in its hurry to be helpful can really mislead you in this aspect.  If you change the order of a control in the IDE it does not react the same way that the IDE did in VB6.  You can end up with duplicates.  If however as Novice_Novice stated you start with a new sequence then the IDE will pick up from that point forward.

You might just double check that you didn't accidentally change the TabStop value to FALSE as well.

Try the following :

start from the very 1st textbox or combobox whatever is in your form.
change its tabindex to 0
now select the second control to which you want to get your cursor after pressing tab on 1st control. Set its tabindex to 1
and so on till your last record.

NOTE :

Skip all the controls in which user cant write (like label,disabled textbox etc)

It will surely work

Everybody is suggesting the same solution. It yet strange that you're not able to fix your problem.

I suggest you to recreate the control and start ordering the tab stops in the order you require.

Or accept the best suggestion to close the question.
