problem with pop up windows

I have a number of pull down buttons with pre-entered text.

When I scroll through my database, using the tab key some will automatically open and I can select the entry I want by using the arrow keys, yet others do not open and I need to use the mouse to open them and select the entry.

I have been looking at this for two hours but do not seem to be able to fix it.

BTW in the tab order they are next in line and should open after the previous field.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Don't know if this is still true but i think if you have selected a popup list and let go so you are in the field you can still paste whatever data you want.

Yes, on Windows pasting can replace values which is one of the reasons we USE popup menus. A User CAN get mess them up regardless. When you say popup list it's confusing to me. I assumed you meant popup menu as compared to drop-down list?

I wasn't quite awake yet. ???

What I meant is that we Developers USE popup menus to prohibit other values. But it is NOT totally safe because an advanced User (used to using CTRL-V) could potentially insert incorrect data. :
