comment Auto Advance to Next Field
I'm not distinguishing users based on their computer skills, I'm distinguishing them based on how often they use this particular form. It is common to put all kinds of keyboard shortcuts into interfaces designed for data entry people. In most cases, yes, it's a bad idea to auto-advance, but if you have a bookkeeper who has to enter hundreds of records, every shortcut is cherished.
