Topic: Tab order in forms

I am currently learning Adobe 5.0 and working with forms. I am creating a series of forms within one document. I have a problem with the data fields that I want to have the user type into. On the third form: data entering into a cell, then tabbing to the next cell, the system will take you back to form two (the cursor does not show on the screen - it could be anyplace on the page), tab again and the system will return you to form 3 skipping a cell. It was suggested I try the setFocus () method. I tried this but it still goes back to form 2 then form 3 and skips a cell. Since it was returning to the same form I thought it might be the naming convention that I assigned. I renamed the fields. The naming convention is not the problem. Setting the tab order does not seem to be the problem. I would appreciate any help given. Thank you
