Finding objects in ERwin Data Modeler

Which zone is the best for questions about ERwin?

I managed to successfully reverse-engineer a database into an ERwin Data Modeler diagram (logical view).

I want to find a specific table in the diagram in ERwin, but when I search on the table name, it just lists the name of the open document as the container of that table.  (Well, duh.)

What I need ERwin to do is to bring the object into focus on the diagram.  There are many hundreds of tables and right now I have to hunt-n-peck through the whole diagram to find a specific table.

Is there a better way to do this in ERwin?

In the ERwin Data Modeler application, go to the Model Explorer under the View menu.  In the Model Explorer pane, right-click on the table, view, or other object, and select "Go To Diagram".
