Show calculated value during a Find

I feel a little sheepish asking this question since it's simple enough but the answer somehow escapes me: I have a simple calculation (text) field that shows the value, ZIP, when a user enters a ZIP code in a text field and PC ("Postal Code") when a non-US postal code is entered in that field; I use it as a nicety to users who enter foreign addresses and don't know/want to see the word, ZIP.

 

The problem is, when in Find mode the calculated value disappears. I've tried using conditional formatting calcs, behavior/hide object calcs (with the associated checkbox ticked and unticked in Find mode), using buttons instead of fields, but it's all the same--the calculated value pulls a disappearing act while in Find mode.

 

Is there a way to get it to work or am I stuck using PC for a field label for both ZIPs and postal codes?

 

TIA for your help!
