    Unanswered: using Form with barcode reader

    Hi I have form and barcode reader where I want to enter the data by barcode reader. I tested in Excel first and it works fine when I hit the barcode reader it goues to the next cell, but when I use the Access form it read the data and the cursor stays in the field. How do programm to go to the next field instead of hitting enter after every scann.

    Most barcode scanners do that automatically.

    Consult your barcode scanner documentation for settings to control it -- it's not an Access thing, it's definitely controlled by the barcode scanner.
