Move to the first character in a text box after update.

I am building an input box for entering a 6 character string. This code can be scanned or entered by hand. To speed up entering this information when scanning I want it to return to the first position ready to accept new input as soon as the "After Update" event triggers. The text box is setup to autotab after the last character is entered so there is no need to do anything but scan the next character string on the list.

I thought it would be as simple this... but it is not working?

With Me!txtWONum
       
    .SetFocus
    .SelStart = 0

End With

HELP!
Fast help gets fast fat points!

Thx
Jeff.

sendkeys "{HOME}"

after .setfocus

Great! That works... Not a fan of send keys so if anybody has a better method please let me know and I'll add some points to the pot!

Thanks for the quick response.
