Automatic Tab to the Next Field with Maximum Character Limit in a Text Box

This need was established by developing VB applications for 3270 mainframe apps. A user typing in a 3270 edit field is automatically placed into the next field once reaching the maximum number of characters for the field:

Sub Text1_KeyUp (keycode As Integer, _
        Shift As Integer)
If keycode > 47 And keycode < 123 _
'Only advance if they have just typed 
'a number or character.
If Len(Me.ActiveControl.Text) = _
        (Me.ActiveControl.MaxLength) Then       
SendKeys "{TAB}", True
End If
End Sub
