O$: "Queue set current field" in complex grid

I have tried this numerous times in a complex grid that is associated with 
a list.  I have never been able to get the cursor to change line location 
by changing the current line in the list (Do 
ilstListName.$line.$assign(2), for example).  I just tried it again in a 
simple test form in Studio 4.2 and got the same results:  the grid cursor 
does not change rows, although the current field is changed by the "Queue 
set current field."  What am I missing?

As a result, I wrote my own method set to navigate a complex grid.  I use 
it with row validation to return the grid cursor to the offending row and 
cell that failed validation.  I'd welcome a much simpler navigation 
method, but I haven't found it yet.

HI Joe:

First set the current line in the datalist represented by the complex 

Then queue set current field.
