Hi folks, this may not have anything to do with my Add-in express app, but I have added a simple windows form to my C# app with 2 text boxes. When I tab between them from Excel, all is good. But when I open the same from from Word and tab between the text boxes, the form beeps and doesn't move off the first text box. Both have tab stop set to true, and a valid tab index value.

I call the same form directly from my Add-in express toolbar, from both Word and Excel. I've tried creating a brand new form from scratch to see if that helped, but the result is the same. I am testing at the moment in Word and Excel 2000.

Thanks!

Dan

Hi Dan,

Try showing the forms modally as non-modals usually interfere with the windowing of the Office application that hosts your add-in.
