You need a few extra snippets of code in the custom form. DHIS users in
South Africa use this a lot for capturing monthly data on a daily basis,
i.e. we use a custom form where Day01 to Day31 are columns with data set
elements as rows - so you obviously need the tab cursor to move down when
you do the capturing of values for dayXX. That snippet looks like the
following (part of this will need to be adjusted depending on the columns
you have in the custom form).

Best regards

Custom HTML extract:

   /*Code to change the tabindex of input cells from horizontal to
vertical: TAB Solution works
  The code moves the input to the next cell using the tab key*/

  // For each row
   $('#keytable tr').each(function() {

   // For each cell in that row (using i as a counter)
        $(this).find('td').each(function(i) {

        // Set the tabindex of each input in that cell to the counter
            $(this).find('input').attr('tabindex', i + 1);

        //Set the attribute name of each input in that cell to daily

        // Counter gets reset for every row

 //Custom Code which changes the keypress operation to the next cell below:
Solution Working
   $('input').on("keypress", function(e) {

        if (e.keyCode == 13) {

        var $this = $(this),
            index = $this.closest('td').index();


   }); //end keypress function

   //The Next Two Scroll function calls are responding for inserting two
horizontal scrollbars on the daily data entry form
   });   //end top scrollbar function

   }); //end bottom scrollbar function
