Bar code scanner - FileMaker

Hi There, I am using bar code scanner to keep track my inventory and I am using portal in one of my file. My problem is I need to press tab to go to the next row on the portal. My bar code scanner gives carriage return after it finishes it's scan. Is there a quick fix to that? or I was thinking is there somewhere in FM that changes how you move around from field to field using carriage return instead of tab ? Thank you __________________________________________________ ________________ Joel Peters Mr ICQ#: 36754157 Current ICQ status: + More ways ...

    Default Bar code scanner

    Hi There,
    I am using bar code scanner to keep track my inventory and I am using portal
    in one of my file.
    My problem is I need to press tab to go to the next row on the portal.
    My bar code scanner gives carriage return after it finishes it's scan.
    Is there a quick fix to that? or I was thinking is there somewhere in FM
    that changes how you move around from field to field using carriage return
    instead of tab ?

    Thank you

    You should be able to change the scanner to send a Tab instead of a
    Carriage Return ... unless it's a very cheapo model.

    If not, then you could create a script which pauses for the barcode
    scanner input. The Carriage Return would then be the same as clicking
    on the Continue button and the script could go to the next portal row
    and pause again.
