I have the tab order set up in my custom form to move from top to bottom. I

used Layout | Tab Order with the following order:

To:

Employee Name:

Manager Name:

Officier Name:

Memo (field)

L_Employee Name: (a label)

L_Manager Name: (a label)

L_Officier Name: (a label)

In the Advanced Properties they are ordered with:

To: as a tab stop true and 0

Employee Name: as tab stop ture and 1

Manager Name: as tab stop ture and 2

Officier Name: as tab stop ture and 3

Memo (field) as tab stop ture and 4

L_Employee Name: (a label) as tab stop false 5

L_Manager Name: (a label) as tab stop false 6

L_Officier Name: (a label) as tab stop false 7

Everything works great UNLESS someone attaches a document/file as the first

step in completing the form. Then when the usere returns to the To: field,

the tab order goes to the toolbar then down to the Memo field. Why doesn't

it go in the the Tab Order specified?

Why? I think it's because there's some special behavior involved with the

memo field that form designes just have to live with.
