> When I use a text box with input mask 99.99 to receive dollar values, I find it necessary to enter a zero before any value below 10.00. This is a royal pain. I know I can work around this by creating separate text boxes for the dollars and cents, but I cannot help but wonder if there isn't an easier way.
> If it is necessary to use separate fields, is there some code I can use for automatically transfering focus to the "cents" field when the decimal point is entered?

I assume the controlsource of the textbox is numeric. Then this should be no problem at all, when you define 2 (or more) decimals after the integer part then typing the decimal point should immediately bring you to the decimal values.
