I have a symbol LS3478 ER scanner that i am having trouble getting to recognize a HORIZONTAL TAB.

The ASCII equivilant for the TAB key is $I, but when this $I is included in the barcode to tell it to go to the next line, it doesnt execute properly.

When the barcode is scanned in notepad, it works like it should, spacing and tabbing where needed, which means notepad recognizes the $I as a TAB, which is what i need it to do in IE.

When scanned in MS Word, instead of tabbing, it recognizes the $I as CTRL I, which is the shortcut for italics, so its putting the font in italics. But i dont need a solution to MS Word, i need one for Internet Explorer.

When scanned in Internet Explorer, it recongizes the $I as CTRL I as well, and in IE, CTRL I is the shortcut for favorites.

sorry if i confused you, but what im trying to figure out is how to get IE to recognize an ASCII equivilant to the TAB key.

thanks, sorry if this topic is not in the right forum.

figured it out
I had to enable function control mapping, which allows for CTRL-key sequences ($I)
