I would consider setting the tabIndex on all your controls in the userform to the logical sequence.  E.g., start with the control at the top left, change its tabIndex to 0, then the next to 1, all the way down to the last control button OK or Cancel, for example.  You'll find that the userform design lends itself to the sequencing of user input.

I would wait until the userform design is complete to do this, as the underlying editor messes with the tab Index as you add controls, but stabilizes once you're done, then you can set the index (order of navigation) at one time.

Generally, the index is set as you create controls, but then gets messed up quickly when you copy/paste, move them around, etc., for understandable reasons.

Cheers,

Dave

I have installed to code provided it works find except. The new problem is after I "SAVE" the record from the userform. On starting a new record the code stalls when I reset the focus back to TextBox1 instead of TextBox2 as requested is there a simple solution.
Should I dis-enable TextBox2 firstly.
I have used the code below.

The line of code:    Me.TextBox1.SetFocus

Thanks for the code in the first comment.
