go to field on form open

When I open a data entry form, I'd like the placeholder to be in a certain field which is located in form header.
Even though I set the tab order, the cursor ends up in the 1st tab of the detail section.
Where and what do I need to specify go to this field on open?
From the command button that leads to the form, or the opened form?
I have to refresh my Access skills...been using Crystal for awhile now.
Thanks for any and all help.
