See attached.

1. Go into the the "facilities" datasheet form.

2. Look at the tab order of the fields.

3, Specifically note the "Percentage Complete" field which SHOULD BE second in the tab sequence.

4. However, when I use the form the "Percentage Field" is NOT second in the sequence.

WHY?

The Tab Order only applies to the Form view and not the Datasheet view.  To change the order in a datasheet, drag the column to the position you want it to be.

Edit...
Seeing how Rey's does work on the version he uploaded, I stand corrected.  However, you can still change the order by dragging the column around.

<The Tab Order only applies to the Form view and not the Datasheet view. >

have you tried creating a datasheet form and apply the tab ordering using the Tab Order wizard?
