    I want to be able to tab from the header to the detail section without the
    user having to lift their hand to the mouse, click, and resume data entry and
    tabbing. I tried giving the first field in the detail section the next
    number (after the last number of the header), but it wouldn't take it.

    Add a tiny text box to the end of the tab order in the Form Header section.

    In its Got Focus event, SetFocus to the first control in the form's Detail
    section, e.g.:
    Me.[Text0].SetFocus

    (You probably know you can create a hotkey by adding an ampersand to the
    attached label of a control.)
