    Default Ms access 2010 on a continuous form move to the next record without using enter or tab etc

    Hello
    We have a one field continuous form that we use to scan numbers into. The problem is after each barcode is scanned the user must hit tab , enter or use the mouse to navigate to the next record. Is there a way to have it move automatically ready to receive the next scan with the user stopping to click anything?

    Thanks

    maybe a touch of vba that monitors the cell and after change then forces the new record

    I believe the scanner can bet setup to append CR to the scanned data.?
