I am looking to create a customized version of the find tool where the layer and field tools are pre-configured. Ideally I could add this to ArcMap 10.1 as a button for end users to who use same search using the find button repeatedly. Any help would be appreciated.

What exactly are you looking to find? Do you mean search for a string with a certain field within a certain layer? – Eyrofire Mar 5 '14 at 18:41
I want to search a specific field in a feature class for a string dynamically entered by the user. – Chris M May 12 '14 at 16:25
