    Barcode scanning - Adding Enter/Return/"CR" after scan

    Hello,

    I need to input numbers by scanning barcodes into an excel file.
    Is there a way to "enter" down into the next cell row each time I scan one (i.e. Scan the # into B4, and the cursor will automatically go to B5 after)??
    Instead of manually pressing enter after each one.
    I tried this macro:

    Right now, after I scan the barcode, the cursor is going into the next column automatically (B4 --> C4).

    I also know that you can get CR added on to the scan if you search for your specific scanner, but I do not have a permanent barcode scanner at this time.

    Please help me, thank you!!

    Why macro, if each scanner has, in its own configuration, option to set the enter/behavior after scanning ?
    You should scan the appropriate barcode attached originally to it.
    It is in the manual or on a separate credit card size form with a description.

    Re: Barcode scanning - Adding Enter/Return/"CR" after scan

    Not sure why it is moving 1 column over instead of 1 row down, the line of code you have to do this is correct.
    This line

    tells it where to move after the scan is entered into the cell.
    The 1 is to move 1 row down, the 0 is to move 0 columns over.
    As for adding "CR" after the scan, do you mean to add it to the end of the scanned numbers, or in a cell next to it?

    Because I don't have a permanent scanner, as I said above.
