In my experience with this, the cursor, when it reaches the end of one
record in a table, will tabe to the first field of a new record in
that table. You could attach a method to the last field fo the table
to tab to the field that you want it to. attach an action method to
the last field to read :
method action( eventInfo )
if eventInfo.ID() = FieldForward then
or use ID.moveTo() if thats the field you want to move to. Good Luck
