Hi Yves,

Even though you can always add the missing returns at
scroll time, in the SynchroniseScrolls handler, it
would be better to fix this problem on returnInField,
as this also allows you to set default data in the
cells of the new line (such as 0,00 for the numeric
column) -- so add this to the group script:

on returnInField
  put word 2 of the selectedLine of the target into \
  put the number of lines of the target into tNumLines
  if tCurrentLine = tNumLines then
    -- add an extra line in all columns
    put return after fld 1 of me
    put return after fld 2 of me
    -- suppose the third column is numeric
    put return & "0,00" after fld 3 of me
  end if
  -- and move the vertical blinker to the next line
  select before line tCurrentLine + 1 of the target
  -- scrolling is handled automatically thanks to
  -- the 'rawKeyDown' handler that I sent earlier
end returnInField

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
