Tab does not apply in excel

WIN7
excel 2010
scanner Motrola DS6707 default settings
I created a datamatrix bacode using the datamatrix font encoder first~d009second.
generated the barcode and scanned it into Excel. it returns firstsecond with second in italics and all of it in the initial cell. the tab is not honored. If I scan in notepad the tab is honored but not in word either. have any idea what I am missing here?

Operating System: win 7

Application: excel 2010

So thank you for your help and I figure I’ll add back to the conversation. The issue indeed was the barcode scanner.
Using the ascii string decoder tool as you suggested I was able to see a difference between you scanning with your barcode gun ~d009 returned <TAB> vs my barcode scanner ~d009 returned <HT>

And I could get the <TAB> to show vs <HT> by enabling “Function Key Mapping” on the barcode scanner.
Now it tabs in excel as expected!
