Advanced Scripting for MAS 90 / MAS 200 ERP - jumping to the desired tab

In a prior post, I described Advanced Scripting for MAS 90 / MAS 200 ERP and how it can help a company save time and money. Here is another real-world example:
In versions of MAS 90 / MAS 200 ERP prior to version 4.40, the Inventory Maintenance and Inventory Inquiry screens were very different in look. Inventory Inquiry showed 'quantities on hand' for the item on the first tab. The Inquiry screen in 4.40 and above has a separate 'Quantities' tab, so it takes a couple of clicks to get to it.

To save one customer's user time each day, we added a script to the Inquiry screen such that once a user chooses an item the system automatically jumps to the Quantities tab. This saves the user a mouse click of time for each item they look up.
