      How do I create a new record automatically once barcode has been scanned?

      Post

      I work at a high school and use FMP to take attendance for large groups of students like school dances or multiple class field trips to the theater.  How the database it set up now I have to click on a "new record" button I created on the layout after I scan each students ID barcode.  I would like FMP to run a script that recognizes the 6 digit barcode in the barcode field and automatically create a new record.

       

      This would prevent multiple barcodes being scanned into the same record and really speed up the process of taking attendance.  

       

      Thank you for your help
