What about "select after fld "F1" ?
put "We" into fld "F1"
-- focus on fld "F1" -- redondant in fact because "select after fld
"F1" is focusing on fld "F1"
select after fld "F1"

get offset("I", fld "F1")
select after char it of fld "F1"
find "I" in fld "F1"
select after the foundText
hope that helps
