Instead of going into find mode, make the button perform a script that first enters find mode, and then use the Go to Field script step (under "Navigation" in scriptmaker) and select the field that you would generally like to go to (if there is one).

I think that if the cursor isn't in a field when you enter find mode, it will go somewhere by default and I suspect that this will be the field that is first in the tab order (a quick experiment should confirm or refute this). You may want to change the tab order to deal with this (Layout Mode -> Layouts -> Set Tab Order).

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Murray

Glenn:

If you're using off-screen fields (which is not recommended) you should always make sure that they are not included in the tab order at all, to prevent users from mistakenly tabbing their way to the off-screen area...
