Hi!  I'm putting together a data entry form.  One of the entries will
be a telephone number.  I've been directed to implement this by using
three separate fields -- the first being for area code, the second for
exchange, and the last for the last 4 digits of the phone number.

When users enter 3 digits in the area code field, instead of hitting
the tab key to move to the exchange field, I want this to happen
automatically upon entry of the last digit.  And after the 3 digit
exchange is entered, they should automatically tab to the last field.

Can someone help?  If script is required, can you tell me where to
find an example?  I'm new to this, have little experience with script,
and am being rushed to finish.

Thanks in advance,

Mike
