Object Name is the named object to make active on the current layout. To assign an object name, choose View menu > Inspector in Layout mode. Click the Position Position tab, then enter a name for the object.
Repetition (optional) lets you choose a field's repetition to go to. Otherwise defaults to 1. This option is ignored if the object is not a field.

Originated in 
FileMaker Pro 8.5
This script step uses an object name to identify an object, so you must assign a unique object name to each object on a layout that you want to go to.
If this script step specifies an object on a tab panel or a slide panel that is not the front-most panel, the specified object is selected and the panel it is on moves to the front of the panel control.
If the script step specifies a field on a popover, the popover opens.
Example 1 
Navigates to a text field named "First Name".
Go to Object [Object Name: "First Name"]
Example 2 
Navigates between different tabs of a tab control.
If [Invoices::Status = "Paid"]
Go to Object [Object Name: "Invoice Statement Tab"]
Else If [Invoices::Status = "Unpaid"]
Go to Object [Object Name: "Invoice Payment Tab"]
End If
Example 3 
Navigates to either the "Paid" tab or the "Unpaid" tab in a tab control depending on the value of Invoices::Status.
Go to Layout ["Invoice Details"]
Go to Object [Object Name: Invoices::Status]
