Your description is a bit vague.
Can you give a bit more detailed description of what it is you are trying to do.
In browse mode I am viewing the third tab of the layout. I made a button to add a new record (NEW RECORD/REQUEST). But when that button is clicked it adds a new record but is still on the third tab...I want to be on the FIRST tab of the new record.
In layout mode, you can select each tab in turn and give them object names by entering the names in the Name box at the top of the position tab.
If you name your first tab, "First Tab"
Then you can use a script for your new record button with:
Go To Object ["First Tab"]
