Access: How to keep form on single record (tab should not jump to next record)?

Posted on 2016-08-26

I have a form set to "single form", but when I've tabbed through all the controls it still jumps to the next record (form's record source is a table). How do I stop that and make the focus jump back to the first control in the current record instead?

In the Form properties, set the Cycle property to Current Record.  By default, it's set to All Records.

That is awesome, and it even worked with sub forms (I've got one where 99% of the time there is only one sub row needed).
Thanks a lot!
