    I am working in a form and want for the cursor to automatically tab to the
    next field after the entry is complets (ex. entering a date 010106 should
    send the cursor to the next field. I want to be able to set this after the
    number of characters allowed for that field are entered. Thank you in advance!

    Set the AutoTab property of each control to Yes. You'll find the property on
    the 'Other' tab in the Properties window in form design view.

    mrsprater,
    Given an input mask of say... 00/00/00;0;_
    Set the AutoTab property for the field to yes.
    As soon as a legitimate date is entered (010106), the cursor will tab to the next field.
