      Setting a tab order to a tab button

      Post

      Hi, 

      So I am currently havng trouble when setting my tab order within the database I created. I am building a database for a school daycare that includes all the children's info, as well as the info of their parents. 

      As you can see in the attached screenshot, I have divided the section where I enter the info of the mother and the info of the father in to separate tabs within the database.

      MY ISSUE:

      When setting a tab ordder/sequence, is there a way of programming the order to include the actual tab in my database? Meaning, once I finish entering all the info of a child's mother, hitting the tab key will bring me to the section reserved for the father's info so that I can enter his info (which is identical to the mother tab, but obviously with different information being entered).

      If anyone can help me with this I would really apprecuate it, I need this new database up and running very very very soon and it is the last thing i have to do. If you need clarification, feel free to ask, and I will clear up anything.

      Thanks.

       

      PS: I have to enter the information for over 400 children, so I would really hate having to use my mouse more than I have to!
