 I assume you are using a scanner that hooks into the keyboard or the keyboard cable and simply emulates the user pushing keys?

In that case, you don't need *anything* special, at all.

Now, it *is* true that the scanner will simply put whatever it scans into whatever field on the form currently has the focus.
