Find if field exists in a dataset

I'm attempting to use Table.FindField('Field2') to determine if a field is  in a table or not.

This works exactly as I would expect if NO fields are defined in the field  editor.

If I define fields with the field editor, FindFields will only find fields in this list.

Is this REALLY the expected result?  If it is, just how DO I determine if a field exists in a table?

I have also tried Table.GetFieldNames(ListBox1.Items);  but the same limitations apply.
