Try this:

  • When user input data in the textbox and press ENTER key, then it moves focus to the next textbox


function gotoNEXT(el , ev){evenObj=window.event || evif(eventObj.keyCode==13){el.nextSibling.focus()}}

Add this to all textbox, except the last one:


If you know the amount of numbers, that will be entered into the textbox, then there is another way of doing this without the ENTER key and the next textbox gets focus automatically
