Selecting a particular field where there is more than one occurence of it on tabs

I am using Set Selection on a notes field to add date and user name and a carriage return leaving the user on a new line to type their notes

 

This works great until I want to add the notes field onto another tab on the same layout - the script is then going to that new occurrence of the field (I guess because it is higher on the layout than the editable one on a different tab.

 

I have tried using Go to object before the Set Selection step but this does not work - Is there any way of selecting the field which may be the 2nd or 3rd occurrence of itself on a layout -

 

Hope that is clear enough - Using Filemaker 14
