Workaround for SendKeys

Sendkeys "{TAB}" can lockup the keyboard in Windows 2000. Here's how to execute a tab in the keydown event using the Win32 API to get around this Windows 2000 bug:
 Private Sub text1_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, 
Shift As Integer) Dim l As Long l = PostMessage(hwnd, WM_KEYDOWN, VK_TAB, 0) End Sub Public Declare Function PostMessage Lib "user32"
Alias "PostMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long,
ByVal wParam As Long, ByVal lParam As Long) As Long Public Const WM_KEYDOWN As Long = &H100 Public Const VK_TAB As Long = &H9
