Title

Data entry with scanner

Post

Hi all,

 

Just wondering if anyone had any experience with this.  Pressing 'control arrow down' will advance you to the next record being browsed.  This is great for data entry from the keyboard.  However, when using a hand held scanner and scanning bar codes, it becomes difficult to scan data into consecutive existing records.  I can program the scanner to enter a tab after scanning data, but have not found a way to program a 'control arrow down'.  I have contacted the scanner manufacturer, Motorola (formally Symbol) and they say the scanner does not support that key combination via the Advanced Data Formatting. Scanner is an LS2208, fairly common. FM 9 adv. on Mac

 

Any suggestions ?
