set focus - Microsoft Access

Does the focus go to the first control in the tab order of the detail section by default? I need it to go to the header section. I'm having to use the SetFocus command in the OnOpen event wherever I need to do this. It seems there should be a easier way. Rick...

    Default Set Focus

    In my "Add New Record" event procedure I have added the
    GoToControl line to have the new record go to FullName
    control. However, when I try it, it tells me it can't
    find the form "FRM_Cash_On_Hand". Is there something
    wrong with the code below???

    Private Sub NewRecord_Click()

    On Error GoTo Err_NewRecord_Click

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
    DoCmd.GoToControl (Forms!FRM_Cash_On_Hand!
    FullName.SetFocus)


    Exit_NewRecord_Click:
    Exit Sub

    Err_NewRecord_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_NewRecord_Click

    End Sub

    Instead of DoCmd.GotoControl try this:

    Me!FullName.SetFocus

    The "ME" is a shorthand way of referring to the form you
    are on.
