Hi castron :

Base is not a word-processor, and you should not expect to be able to use formatting tools like tabs in a Base form's fields (text boxes, etc). Usually pressing tab will just take you to the 'next' field in the form (as you probably already found out!).

Of course, you can format Base output by creating a 'report' in Base's REPORT BUILDER or simply create a suitable FORM to display your data in a suitable format for printing.

Maybe this thread in ApacheOpenOffice forum can help:

I never used Base but recommend you to just try it and have a look into the free manuals, which you find here:
