This is a case for drag'n'drop :-)

Group your fields and add this script to the group:

on mousedown
   set the dragdata["text"] to the number of the target
   ## or short name or...
end mousedown

on dragmove
   put the target ## into fld xyz
   ## or short name of the target or...
end dragmove

Tested and works :-)

You get the picture...
