Symptoms

When a lookup or search window is opened, the cursor is at first element of the results grid.  Instead it should start with the field search criteria so that user can enter the text to search at the top of the window.

The tab order is therefore incorrect.

The problem affects all lookup prompts, but as an example:

- Accounts Payable -> Vouchers -> Add/Update -> Regular Entry
- Look up Short Vendor name
- Tab is at first element of the results grid, instead it should start with the field search criteria (i.e Short Vendor name) so that user can enter the text to search.

The current design is not ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant, and affects users using accessibility tools.
