tabbing from field to field

I have created custom fields below the primary fields in ACT 2008.  These fields were not created in the "user fields" section, I am using these user fields for a different purpose.  Anyway, when I tab from custom field to custom field, it doesn't go in order.  It tabs from the first to the 5th, to the 2nd, to the 8th, etc.  What I mean by in order is, for example, in the primary fields, you tab from Company field to Contact field to Title field, and so on.  Hopefully this makes sense, I would like to be able to tab swiftly from field to field.

Please help!

Hi Erin.

 

Have you changed the Tab order in the Layout Designer?

 

If not, open Layout Designer then in the menu select View -> Tab Stops ->  Show Tab Stops.

Click each field to remove the tab stop (tab order) then click each cleared field in the order you want the tab to take.

For example, if Field1 is currently 12, Field2 is 14, and Field3 is 13, click Field2 and Field3 to clear the tab stop.  Click Field2 to set Tab stop to 13, click Field3 to set Tab stop to 14.
