Af for your first question, In several stacks I have a field  
"entrée" (your "search field"), a field "dataFld" and a field  
in the script of the field "Entrée" I have the following handler that  
works including badkwards

ON rawkeyUp which
local maSousListe,
      IF which is 65293 THEN pass rawkeyUp ---just because I need a  
returninField handler
       find fld "entrée" in fld "dataFld"
       IF the result is "not found" THEN exit repeat
       put value(the foundline) & cr after maSousListe
     END repeat
     put empty into fld "résultats"
     put maSousListe into fld "résultats"
     select  line 1 of fld "résultats"
     select after fld "entrée"
     put empty into maSousListe
END rawkeyUp
