Robert, it sounds like your cells are all separate fields - is that
correct? If that is so, then you just need to set the layers in the
order you want to tab through them. The inspector has a convenient
button for doing this. Select all your fields in the order you want to
tab through them, then open the Inspector on the Align tab. At the
bottom there are 2 buttons and I can never remember which one to use,
but basically, they re-layer all the selected objects either from
front to back or from back to front. My method is to use one, test and
then use the other :-)
