I created a 12 page protected form with many tables. Each table has text form fields and nested tables. At the top of each page, the employee name, date and location are supposed to be entered. So, I created a table on each page with one row that serves as the header. This eader tablehas six columns of which 3 contain form fields. The other three just contain labels. This row is on each of the 12 pages. Once the user types in the required information and presses the tab key, the information fills down to each of the remaining 11 pages. To move between the form fields on each page and between pages, the user uses the tab key. However, when the users tabs from one page to the next , the cursor jumps to the header field on page one then returns to the correct field on whatever page he should be. On the same page the tab key works as it should. Even weirder, when I mouse-click on the header table cells on any page other than the first, the cursor jumps to the top of the document and stays there. How can I stop this? I used the following code for the fill downs for the three fill-in fields, I just changed the field name. In the form-field options, I used these as on-exit macros. Sub Autofill_Name1() Dim strInput As String strInput = ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name1").Result ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name2").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name3").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name4").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name5").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name6").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name7").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name8").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name9").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name10").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name11").Result = strInput ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name12").Result = strInput End Sub -- Lynne
This problem often turns out to be caused by inadvertently brushing the touchpad.

While typing in Word, my cursor will jump back to the last point clicked even though I typed a few lines or words ahead of it. I know I am not accidentally touching the mouse because it moves when my hands are completely away from the keyboard. How can I make it stop? Any help or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated.
I have a new notebook and my cursor often automatically jumps to wherever my mouse is positioned on my document, or, if the mouse is positioned over another screen it will jump to that screen. Obviously this causes me a LOT of problems when I am typing documents, with words cutting into the middle of others, etc. How can I shut this off?!?! I'm a teacher working on a double MA this summer, and this is killing me. Thank you in advance
