Script pauses in Find Mode on dropdown

Post

I've run into an annoyance with FileMaker 11 that I'd appreciate a bit of help working around.  I have a script that performs a find based on a calculated value.  However my scrip pauses in find mode with a dropdown field expanded, waiting for a selection.  This field isn't the field that I'm searching on.  The pre-expansion of the dropdown seems to be typical behavior as I see the same thing when going to find mode manually.

 

Can I stop FM from focusing on this dropdown and expanding it by default in find mode?  I tried playing with tab order, but that didn't seem to do it.

 

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
