How to navigate to a specific record not relative to a found set

Post

I have a student layout and I created a button to perform a find on certain criteria.

After the find is performed I like to be able to locate the original records (if it falls within tthe found set) and keep it displayed.

I have designed a loop to go through the found set to locate the recors according to a  saved field value. I did this because  the "go to record"  script step only works relative to the found set.

This method is OK for small files but it takes long for large files.

Is there a better way to do this?

In other packages I used before I had a "seek" command which locates the record without changing the found set (or the filtered table according to that package terminology)?
