If does that automatically. However, if there are links and/or comments on the page they'll be next in the tabbing order, after the fields.

The only way around that is by using a script that "jumps" to the first field in the second page after exiting the last field on the first page.

I'm in Acrobat Pro XI and it won't go to the next page automatically.  It just goes back to the top of the first page.  Do you have a script that would work???
