After a barcode is read, you can control another char, eg, TAB or CR.  Then you can capture the value, progress to next line, etc with afterEvent .

One thing that comes to mind, when entering products one after another, the cursor is in the Product Number field on the form

How do you advance to the next line after a scan? Without them having to hit tab or return?

I suppose if the product numbers were ALL a CERTAIN LENGTH you could trap for Len() within evKeyPress event type.

What do you all do to advance to the next line after a scan?

I looked up bar code readers on Amazon and was surprised to find many that are bluetooth and wireless and wired

They’re cheap! I was surprised. Amazon’s Choice is only $34 US, that’s low. It does most types of codes. It has good range.

It’s rather amazing how most products can be found on Amazon. I should just learn to look there before I ask a question !
