Using AutoTab with a Set MaxLength

To add AutoTab to text boxes that have a set MaxLength, add this code to the text box Change event:
 Sub Text1_Change () 
If Len(Text1) = Text1.MaxLength Then 
SendKeys "{Tab}" 
End If 
End Sub 
This saves the user one keystroke when moving from one field to the next. It's best not to intersperse this behavior, but instead to use it on an all-or-nothing basis to prevent massive user confusion.
