I wrote an excel macro which extracts payment data from the screen onto an excel worksheet.  

I want to copy paste the excel data onto an internet payment form.

If I copy data from several excel cells, and try and paste the data onto the internet payment form, all the data from the several excel cells gets pasted onto the first field on the internet form.  It does not tab down to the next input field on the internet form and paste the data from the next excel cell that is in the clipboard.

I set up a partial fix.  I set up a button on the excel worksheet which copies the current cell and goes down to the next cell.  Therefore, I can click on the excel button and paste to the corresponding field on the internet form.  It is not as fast as copying several cells in excel and pasting them in mass to all the fields on the internet form.

I am surprised that Microsoft doesn't have this copy/paste option.  Maybe they do, I just haven't come across it.

If there isn't a standard fix for this, is it possible to insert the Tab Function into the excel worksheet, so that it executes when you paste to the internet form?
