I prefer to use "the target" and would suggest something like this:

on returnInfield
    if the long id of the target = field id 1045 of card id 1002 of
stack "BLEdit" of stack "clients" then
        pass returninfield
    else
        returnkey
    end if
end returnInfield

(watch for line wrap on the 2nd line).

HTH,
