Chapter 3. Layout Enhancements > Moving Through Fields

Moving Through Fields

Making a database easy to use involves many elements. On the one hand, you want to let users move through layouts with ease. One way you can do that is to allow users several keyboard options for navigating a layout.

On the other hand, you want to protect the data integrity. For example, many layouts contain serial numbers that not only identify the record uniquely, but are used as key fields to link tables. These fields should almost never be changed. Yet, as users move through a layout, they can inadvertently access these fields.
