AutoTab to Automatically Move to Next Field when Finished Typing
Learn how to use the AutoTab and Input Mask features in Microsoft Access to enter a specific number of digits and then jump focus to the next field to speed up data entry.
Richard from North Adams, MA (a Developer student) asks: I have a field that I want to store as a number (long integer) but I want to display it as two digits (00, 01, 02). Also, when the user types in both digits, I would like to automatically move to the next field. How can I do this?
I'll show you how to use the BeforeUpdate event, OnChange event, and the Text property to perform the same task in VBA with a lot more flexibility and control.
