Tab for next field - mixed up order

Hi all,

 

I'm working on ACT 2010 and have changed fields around using design layouts. 

 

To fill in data, I tend to use the tab button to move to the next field. However, having moved things around and deleted fields etc etc, the tab button does not flow in the intended order.

 

How do I get ACT to recognise the correct order of fields, as they are on the screen?

 

(I'm no tech boff, so easy speak only please!)

Hello LauDav5,
Welcome to the Sage ACT! Community. To control the Tab order, you must define this in the layout:
- Tools > Design Layouts > Contact
- View > Tab Stops > Show Tab Stops
- Right-click on a field to enter it's tabbing order
- Double-click on a field to clear it's tab stop
- When done, go to View > Tab Stops > Show Tab Stops
