Combining a Custom Dialog Box with a Perform Find script

Post

I want to allow a user to enter some text which will be used by a Find script to locate a record which contains a field that matches that text.  I tried to use a Perform Find with a local variable (via Get Variable) but when I specify the field to be searched, the data in that field gets  CHANGED.  I tried to use the Custom Dialog Box, but I can't figure out how to enter text which can be used as the search criteria for a Find command.  What ever I do ends up changing the field.  I DONT want to do data entry, I want to FIND a specific record based on a variable that the user enters.

If I can do that, then of course, I'll have to take care of the case in which the entered text is not found in any records.

Any help or insight will be greatly appreciated.
