You can change the order of the field as you tab through a form. Double-click on the Customers Order Form to open it up. Press the Tab key repeatedly, so that you can see yourself tab through the fields. But notice when we get to Documentation, it tabs there first before going to Flag, and that's because in an earlier lesson, we switch the order of those two locations. If I press Tab again, it takes me down to my Orders table, but I don't want the Tab to go down here at all. So I want to take it off of the tabs list. To make these changes, go up to the Views menu, and drop it down and choose Design View.
Come up here to the Tab Order button, and scroll down to the bottom so we can see Flag and Documentation. We want Flag to be above Documentation, so click on Flag and then drag it up, so that the two switch, and Click OK. The next thing we want to do is move the Subform out of the tabs. Click on the Subform, and then open up your Property Sheet, if it's not already. There is a button right here to toggle it, and scroll all the way down to the bottom.
You'll see Tab Stop. Change that to No. And then let's go to Datasheet View and give it a try. Perfect! That's how you take control over your Tab Stops.
