Geez...
I have 20 input fields and must leave the keyboard
and click with the mouse to move to the next field.

Annoying and, I think, prob unnecessary.
Simply cannot find example code anywhere...

How about a for loop, inside a class that takes your table input.. something like (maybe)
import java.io.*;
public class InputHelp{
public String getTheInput(String promptUser){
String userInput = null;
for (integer iv=0;iv<20;iv++){
// prompt user
try {
BufferedRead is new BufferedReader{
//get the line
//test the line for length
} // catch the exception
} // end for
return userInput;
}
}
//the prompt user would hold a System.out.print or prinln, looping for your
input
just a guess
