Fairly basic reason. Vaccines come/vaccines go, names change, we can't 

If you read the docs (on the gnumed web site) I've explained the sequence in 
detail. Remember we are trying to minimise keyboard data entry by using popup 
lists. As one types in the target disease(schedule) up pops the list. We 
select eg Hepatitis b <hit the enter key). As soon as the cursor hits the 
vaccine line (which you should automatically set in code) up pops the list of 
all the hepatitis b vaccines (brand  - trade name). The programmer sets focus 
to the first item on the list so the user can scroll down and select one.

Also I woudn't put the serial number on a separate line, it is not needed and 
is more logical to go down the column.

The clear still doesn't clear, and the ok doesn't accept (at least on the cvs 
I downloaded today.

BTW have you implemented the pop up lists for this edit area. Their use is 
inseparable from the paradigm.
