how to "sudo tab" to the next calculated field by using find

I've been compiling a list of substitute strings by virtue of a "go to next" loop only to  discover calculated fields are ignored even with tab order set.

It's tedious to construct the whole substitute string manually .



apparently *  by inference tab order does apply to calc fields when in find mode.

     so I'm thinkin how can i "find next field" instead of "go to next"



Selecting a field in Browse mode or Find mode

*   "In Browse mode, you can't press a key to select summary or calculation fields.

        In Find mode, you can't press a key to move into summary fields."




When compiled, my substitute function works  as expected except for calc fields being ignored.



"Substitute (textField::name;

[\""&Get(ActiveObjectName) & "\"; " & Get ( ActiveFieldTableName ) & "::" & Get ( ActiveFieldName )&"];



....  approx 40 substitutions  > only a few are calculated fields
