Using caret focus to obtain Third Party Window Control ID?

P: 1
I have a third party form open and wish to get the control id from the text box with the current caret focus; there are a great many text boxes on this form each containing a unique control id. I have thought of using the point API but it is not perfect and using it on other computers does not always set focus to a specific text box due to system lag. I can recover the Control ID using Spy++ or WinID but; I do not need the Actual ID but the way it is retrieved with the top window focused on the caret. I am using excel VB6 to access a form from PureEdge.

basically the project i am working on is as follows:

>>open form >
>>query what is the child_ID >
>>if child_ID = # type information in textbox >
>>tab to next text box >
>>query this text box and continue thru rest of form>

I have been reading all the forums I can find on the internet and seem to be at a loss here. If anyone can help please respond.
