How to prevent a user from tabbing to a control on a form in Microsoft Access 2003
Follow the instructions to prevent a user from tabbing to a control on a form in Microsoft Access 2003:
Open the form in Design view.
Right-click the control to skip, and then click ‘Properties’.
Click the ‘Other’ tab.
In the ‘Tab Stop’ box, select ‘No’ in the list that appears.
