Done a fair amount of work in Access and this one is stumping me. I have a simple database nothing elaborate just a reg table with a form linked to it. The table has 4 fields and each field is inputed via a barcode scan from a USB scanner. The first field goes in fine and the cursor goes to the next field. When i do the second scan it shows the information going into the field but it does not hold it. The field is empty. Even if a do a new table and set it up using datasheet view and start scanning data it does the same thing. The only way i can get it to work is if i double click on the 2nd field before scanning and then it works. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
