Stuck - Well the cursor is!  Navigation script help needed

I do hope that some kind soul would be able to help me.

 

I have a bluetooth barcode scanner which I can pair with my Mac/ Ipad

 

I have looked at forums and attempted to use a script provided my PhilModJunk but struggled even though I have been able to program the scanner. To be honest, I don't think that my problem is to that end of the business it's more what happens when the data is passed into the layout.

 

Here's a screen grab showing my current version of the script and layout.

Data is scanned and populates the global field (I have to click into that manually to begin with)

 

That then in turn populates the Scan_StudentID field allowing me to view related data form elswhere in the database...

 

What I cant get to happen is from Scan_StudentID for the cursor to go back into that gScanInput field to start all over again. Of course when the data is passed from the gScanInput to ScanStudentID there's no Return/Enter/Tab to move out of that field.

 

 

 

I can click into the global field manually but that's not really the plan!

 

Any one got any ideas to save me another weekend infront of the Mac tinkering?
