Adobe 9.0 Standard - Form Fields

I have form fields in an interactive pdf.  I need one box for each letter/number of the name, address, phone, etc.  Once a letter is keyed in, I want to automatically advance to the next field.  I want the user to type seemlessly, advancing through the boxes w.o effort.  I used a custom keystroke script which does half the job.  It brings the focus to the next field, but the character isn't effortlessly entered into the next field - you have to hit enter to have the next field accept the entry.  The custom keystroke script is only in the "Employer" line so far - I didn't put in all fields yet since it's not working the way I want.

Hi

>>fighting the clock on this one
Sorry, only just online...but I try and make this quick.

I am not sure what you mean with keystroke script...but this is not necessarily needed.

I would use the 'Comb' option.

I have just tried this on the 'Participant first name' fields. Deleted F2-F10 and stretched F1 across all ten squares. Then right click> Properties and to the 'Options' tab. Untick all flags and select 'Comb of 10 Characters' (see below)  Comb
You may have to clear your script too...

But this should make all form fields simpler and by far less than you have, not good to have one filed per character anyway...
