To find a value where you can search all available fields, use the FindEx method.
Either statement in the following example finds the next task with priority = 600.
Sub FindFieldByPriority Find Field:="Priority", Test:="equals", Value:="600" Find Field:="xx", Test:="xx", FieldID:=pjTaskPriority, TestID:=pjCompareEquals, Value:="600" End Sub
