The goto portal row step enables you to move to a particular row in the 'active' portal. If a portal isn't active, the step is applied to the first portal encountered in the layout's stacking order.
When changing portal rows, this step attempts to keep the same field active. If no field in the portal is active, the step activates the first field that it can enter.
Choose 'Select entire contents" if you want the entire portal row to be selected, rather than just making a single field active. You must use the Specify pop-up menu to choose a target portal row.
The Next and Previous options include an 'Exit after last' option that enables this script step to end if you attempt to select a portal row that is before the first or after the last row. If you do not include this option, the step simply wraps around and goes to the last or first row, respectively.
Choose the By number option to specify a particular portal row by its number. When executed, this step can present a dialog box in which you choose a row number, or it can directly go to a particular row when 'Perform without dialog' is checked.
To choose a portal row based on the current value in a particular field, choose 'By field value' and select a field. The field must contain a number corresponding to a row in the portal. I use global fields for that.
