Is there any chance you are seeing the <F3> situation described in Help?
"NOTE: While <F3> usually repeats the most recent entry in a field,
there is one situation where this is not true. If you press <F3> in a
field that already contains an entry, and if that entry was made
within the last 15 entries, then TMG will insert the entry that
follows it on the list of the last 15 entries. You can access the list
of the last 15 entries by pressing <Ctrl>+<F3>. If you want to insert
the last entry, delete the contents of the field before pressing <F3>."

The repeat files are deleted when you refresh the repeat files and will have no data until you do subsequent data entry. You can't determined whether the F3 key works until you do some data entry for any given field.
Yes, I have been using version 8 for over a month with no problems with the repeat key, or data entry.

I also put the cursor in the state field and pressed, <Control>.+<F3> in hopes of accessing the list of the last entries. The field remained blank and did not show me I had previously entered anything in this field...
I hope someone has an answer to this as this is getting frustrating. Thank you.

You said earlier that F3 worked all right in other programs - so that would seem to eliminate the keyboard. Check your settings for the Repeat files in Preferences / Advanced as Helmut suggested. Note these Advanced settings are specific to a project. Is this by chance a different project from when it worked?

I downloaded TMG 8 to my laptop and it works fine. I then dug out an old keyboard and TMG works fine on my desktop with the old keyboard. Now all I have to do is figure out how to correct whatever I did with the regular keyboard. Just seems strange the repeat key works fine with Excel and table file repeats.

My PC is Dell Windows7, 64 bit. The F3 repeat worked just fine in TMGv7 on the same machine.
Any new ideas to solve this issue?
Thanks for your help.

Does your keyboard have a function key button (F Mode) which switches the function keys to an alternate function like opening Excel?
Another possibility is an Excel shortcut. On the Start menu, find the Excel program under Microsoft Office. Don't open Excel but rightclick on it and choose Properties. Click the tab labeled Shortcut and see if there is anything entered in the Shortcut key field; if so delete it and click on OK.
