Help: How can I set the insertion cursor in a certain cell?

I am writing a notebook acting as an input window. It has some buttons
and an editing box (an editable cell). When I start the notebook the
insertion cursor is always at the beginning of the notebook. I have to
click the editing box before I start typing or everything will go to
the beginning of the window. I would like put the cursor in the
editing box so that I can start typing once the window is opened. I
can not find an option to set the cursor in the editing box but I can
keep the cursor in the box by run the SelectionMove in the box. How
can I initialize the cursor in the editing box? The box has a cell tag
as "Input".

Thanks in advance.
