Cursor in Field locking records

I have a multi user db and I'm finding that people are locking records b/c they are leaving the cursor in a field after doing a specific task.

Is there a way to script all fields to have NO focus after a task is complete?

I have tried to change focus to other objects on the screen, like a button, that do not use a cursor but the file remains locked.

Any thoughts?

Could you explain what that specific task is? Perhaps you could script it for them, so that they don't have to (and perhaps cannot) enter any actual fields.

BTW, the problem is not leaving the cursor in a field as such, but rather not committing the record after having modified a field (or fields).
