Any suggestions on how to allow objects in a Form Header to behave as a tab stop? The tab order goes immediately to objects in the Detail section of the form. I verfied that the Tab Stop property of the object in the Header is set to Yes. Also, the object displays on the Tab Order screen.
Thanks in advance!

Behind the "On Load" event of the form, place the following code:
hope this helps...

Tabstops in a form header or footer behave separately from the detail section.
In other words, once you are in a section, hitting tab will only cycle through the controls in that section.
If you want to make them behave all as one group of tabstops, you either need to:
1) Put them all in the detail section, and get rid of your headers/footers.
2) Specifically handle the pressing of TAB and CTRL-TAB in the first and last control of each section, to setfocus to the appropriate control in the next or previous section.

Thank you both!!!! In this case, setting focus to a control in the Header did the trick as the form just provides a list and I don't need to jump from header to detail.

Alan, glad to help. All the best with your project!
Peter, thanks for adding the other suggestions...I may use that at some point; I was actually dealing with the same thing as Alan just this morning :-)
Have a great weekend!
