Chapter 7. Creating and Using a Form > Navigation in a Form

Navigation in a Form

Navigation in a form refers not just to the fields that appear on the form but also to the records within the form. When you're working on a form, you can navigate the form using several methods. The first is to use the Enter key. The Enter key accepts the data that the user entered into the field and moves the focus to the next field. The Tab key performs the same action, but the user doesn't need to enter any data. If shortcut keys are associated with buttons on the form, the user can hold down the Alt key and press the corresponding underlined letter. For moving between records, the easiest technique is to use the record navigation buttons that appear at the bottom of the form.
