1) Form opens with focus in cldtable. I have combobox in the header and need the form to open with focus there. (I've checked tab order that isn't problem. And tab stop is YES) also, I can't tab from (details section) cldtable to header... 2)When focus (only by mouse click) is in the combo box you can scroll by entering text or using arrow keys BUT when you get to the item you want ENTER OR TAB changes the info in the box, fills the fields on the form, but the combo box doesn't close UNTIL you ENTER again. 3)If there is an apostrophe in the name it will show up in the combo box (fixed that with) rs.FindFirst "[NameOfPublication] = ' " & Replace(Me![List11], " ' ", " ' ' ") & " ' " BUT it will not populate the fields in the form. It just jumps back to the start of the combo list. WOE IS ME! I have searched extensively on this board to no avail... can anyone help?
