You change the tab order by changing the layer order in the basic 
properties palette.  Tab order is lowest layer to highest.

For a quick re-ordering, open the Alignment Palette from the Object 
menu.  Then shift-click all of the fields you want to tab to in the 
order you want.  Then click on either the relayer ascending or 
relayer descending button.  The fields will be automatically 
relayered in the order you chose them.
