Default Best options for setting tab order in a form

I am currently trying to do a form that will be linked to a web page as well as a database to capture responses.

It is my first time and the "tab order" is giving me grief.

I have been using "text form fields" for the data entry slots, but when I try to test the form it does not tab between them.

I think I set the "option buttons" correctly and they are only selecting one option, but there is a field where I need to permit multiple selections. Should I use check boxes for that field?

HEEEELLLLLLPPPPPP!!!!!!!!
