Keyboard Shortcuts

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Most of ADCAR's entry fields and windows respond to keyboard commands or "shortcuts" which allow for more rapid data entry under certain circumstances.

When viewing a record, pressing the <Tab> key moves the cursor to the next field, automatically expanding and collapsing detail fields as necessary. <Shift-Tab> moves the cursor to the previous field.

Numeric and date fields support increment and decrement via the <+> and <-> keys.

Fields can be cleared by typing <Ctrl_-> (hold down <Ctrl> and press the <-> key.)

Many of the command bar functions can be invoked using the following key sequences*:


Goto first record.


Goto last record


Goto prior record.


Goto next record.


Add new record.


Erase record.


Edit/Post record.


(*) Note: Not all windows support command bar shortcuts.
