I have a list in a datasheet view with a drop down on the 3rd field. When I navigate into the 3rd field I want the list to open. The reason for this is beacuse the user is entering data via a barcode scanner. When the user uses the keyboard ( ALT + arrow down) then scans, the field behaves fine. If the user tries scanning without the dropdown being opened extra selections from the dropdown get entered and gets messed up.

  • so he has some applications which scans online and saving barcode to the dropdown? Jan 22, 2019 at 15:24
  • No, not entering an actual barcode. Just using a barcode scanner to scan a barcode which then enters the data into the list field so that the user doesnt have to type it. But I dont want to get hung up on the barcode aspect. I want to know if there is a way to have a drop down field open once you navigate into the field.
