Moving Between Fields
So far, when adding or changing values in fields, you have moved between the fields by clicking them. That works, but can be tedious. Fortunately, there is a much easier way to move between fields. In FileMaker Pro, the Tab key can be used to move from one field to the next. Similarly, you can use Shift+Tab to move to the previous field.
As you tab between fields on a layout, FileMaker usually determines which field to place you in based on the field to the right of the current field, or, if there is no field to the right, to the field below the current field. However, as you see in Chapter 11, “Working with Layouts,” you can specify the order in which fields are entered as you tab through them.
