paste into multiple fields with Quicksilver?

During my normal work day, I do a lot of work in a web-based database application. And for the really repetitive data entry items, I have set up triggers to paste the "canned text" into different fields. But I have yet to figure out how I can paste into multiple fields at once with one trigger. Is this possible?

For example: Right now... I manually place my cursor in a field... hit Cmd+Opt+O to paste the first bit of text... hit the [Tab] key on my keyboard... hit Cmd+Opt+P to paste the next bit of text... hit the [Tab] key on my keyboard... hit Cmd+Opt+[ to paste the last bit of text.

But what I want to do is just place the cursor in the first field... hit Cmd+Opt+O and have it automatically paste-tab-paste-tab-paste. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get Quicksilver to Tab over to another field.

Can someone shed some light on this?

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
