Buttons to manage large text blocks?

I'm trying to manage large blocks of text displayed in individual fields. I'd like to provide the user with buttons to move to the top and end of the block. In other words, exactly what the Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End keys do from a PC keyboard.

I've been working with the Set Selection[Record::Field] but can't get the results I need. My example shows the results I've gotten so far.

Is there a way to construct a "Type In" script step that is equivalent to the user typing into the field? If so, can the characters be control characters? If so, will they be stored in the block or acted upon (as if they were being typed)?

BTW, I want to avoid executing any true script because of the screen flash that results under XP on complex layouts -- so I need a direct-execute (i.e., Button Setup) operation.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
