  Sample input:
Perform Find/Replace [getActiveSelection; Find Next]

-- All Records/Requests. All fields. Next. Direction: All.
  Sample output:
Finds the next instance of the selection. Since the Find keeps the result selected, this function can be repeated to find each subsequent instance.

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

John Mark Osborne built something like this before custom functions existed, and this was my inspiration for the specific use of this function. The function can be used for many other purposes as well.
