If you mark the field as protected tabbing will skip over it but that also means that the field can't be used for entering data.

Every object gets a tab number but only fields get tabbed to. Have you tried testing the form? Tabbing should skip the text box.

Ah okay. Could I remove a field from the tab order completely?

You can also script this property if you need to turn it on and off:

fieldName.access = "protected";

The options are:

open

protected

readOnly

nonInteractive

Hi Jono -

Can you remove the tabs from a calculated field?

I have the Premium being calculated once the Amount is entered so I don't want the curser to stop on the Premium fields.

Possible?
