I'd like to turn off a feature



Does anyone have a macro that turns off the tab feature of
Word in a protected form? (or in a table in an
unprotectec document). I have a request for a form where
the user must use the cursor to get from one form field to
the next...

"Use the cursor" doesn't tell me enough, I'm afraid. Do you mean:
Use the mouse pointer?
Use the arrow keys?

In a protected form, the tab key is the primary method of moving from field
to field from the keyboard. What is it that your user wants to accomplish by
turning the tab key off? You can use Ctrl-Tab to insert a tab character in a
table instead of moving to the next cell, not sure about in a protected form

Which version of Word?
