LiveCycle ES4. How can I set focus to an expanding row in a table?

Say I click a + button to add a row to a table. How can I xfa.host.setFocus to a cell in the NEW row? The only thing I can manage to do currently is set the focus to Row 1 Cell 1. But how can I write a script for a table row that does not actually exists until the user clicks the "+" button? Currently when I add a multiple rows, the focus will be placed into row 1 every single time. I want each NEW row cell 1 to get the focus.

Imagine a plus + button to the left of this. User clicks it. The row below me appears, with a blinking cursors ready for input. (I know its there, but pretend it does not appear until the user clicks the plus button above)

by using this method, it will return the instance added within the table. So you can hold the new instance in a variable, like the following:

with the new variable, you have the right path to be able to set focus on the field you want with the following:

I hope this will help you.
