How to move cursor to the end of a field (not begining)?

Here is a piece of my lotus script code when a button is pressed:
Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
Set uidoc = workspace.CurrentDocument

uidoc.EditMode = True
Call uidoc.GoToField( "fieldName")

Open in new window

It puts the cursor in the field that will be edited. The problem is that the cursor goes to the begining of the field. When the field is quite long, it takes time to scroll down to the end of the field when some one is trying to add some text to the field. Is there a way to change the code and make the cursor go to the end of the fiield?

How about using @Formula?

If it's not the last field on your form, first position the cursor in the field to the right/bellow of your field and then use EditLeft to simulate pressing left arrow key on a keyboard:
@Command( [EditGotoField] ; "TheNextFieldName" )
@Command( [EditLeft] ; count )

Open in new window

If it's the last field on your form (the same as pressing Ctrl+End):
@Command( [EditBottom] )

Open in new window

You can try to do the same with LotusScript using:
    Call notesUIDocument.GotoBottom
    Call notesUIDocument.GotoField("fieldName")
    Call notesUIDocument.GotoPrevField

If that doesn't work, or you don't want to rely on the visibility of other fields, try this one:

Call uidoc.GoToField( "fieldName")

I might have the syntax wrong, so please check.
