Moving from Field to Field with the Keyboard

To move the cursor with the keyboard, use any of the following keys:


Moves the cursor to the beginning of


The next input field


The previous input field


The next input field or next line


The previous input field or previous line


In the standard SAP System, the cursor automatically moves to the next input field when it reaches the end of the current input field. This feature is called automatic tabbing (AutoTAB). It is useful when you are entering data in many fields and you want to avoid having to press the TAB key to move among these fields.

However, AutoTAB only works at the end of an input field. For example, if the Material field can hold 12 characters, but the material number you enter is only 7 characters long, you must press the TAB key to move to the next input field.

For information on activating AutoTAB, see Tabbing Between Fields Automatically.
