Hi Guilmar,

  Using the ENTER key can cause problems, if you press ENTER after typing the customer number, you'll end up with several blank fields.  I would recommend adding two buttons to your screen, one for ADD and another for EXIT.  That way you could make as many entries as you want before closing the form.  THISFORM.RELEASE in the EXIT button's click event is all you need.  

  Use the ADD button's click envent to actually add your data to the grid.  You'll need to update the source of the grid by adding the new record (a GRID source is usually a table).  After updating the source, reset all your text fields back to spaces.  Once the source is updated, refresh the form with THISFORM.REFRESH and set the focus back to your customer number field.  At that point, the grid should be populated and you're ready for another set of data.

Questions about development only. No installation or hardware specific questions, please. Your first step in requesting assistance should be to identify the version of FoxPro you are using. I can write short functions but, PLEASE do not ask me to write programs for you.
