Title

Data collection batch input too slow

Post

For my application I use a code scanner. The scanner is set in batch mode so all data is copied in one time in to filemaker using a bluetooth connection (keyboard).

The scanner is configured with an interval as the data below here;

"CODE" <TAB> "CODE" <ENTER> 
"CODE" <TAB> "CODE" <ENTER> 
"CODE" <TAB> "CODE" <ENTER> 
"CODE" <TAB> "CODE" <ENTER> 

All entries must be translate into an individual record. To achieve that , I thought using the following scripting option " Code ( Get ( TriggerKeystroke ) ) = 13" as script triggers  OnLayoutKeystroke to create a new record. Now this function works well on the Filemaker Pro environment but Filemaker Go seems to be too slow to perform this function. Because the transition to a post not consistently done in the end part (enter). Does anyone have an idea how I get this feature properly.

(when I try it to import data in another application like Excel the enterfuntion works well)
