set the hilitedlines of fld "your field here" to your_line_number_here
send "mouseup" to fld "your field here"

Just tested and it looks like this does trigger a "mouseup" but "the 
is not respected...?

Hope that helps though...

Try using "the hilitedlines" or "the selectedtext" or whatsoever, as 
long as
it works with "send mouseup..." ;-)
