Answers / Create and analyze forms

If the seven characters of that field are equally spaced, you won't need seven individual fields and autotab. Instead of that, create a text field over the full length of the area, and then set it to be a comb field consisting of 7 characters. You do that in the Options tab of the field properties.Hope this can help.
Hi Max, thanks for your answer. When I go to options to set it to be a comb field, that option is grayed out and I can't choose it. I tried everything I could think of and nothing would make that option available to me. Any thoughts on what I could be doing wrong or why it's not available?

You'll need to remove the check marks for Scroll Long Text and CheckSpelling to enable the Comb field.
Thank you, Lori. That did the trick and is working great!
