Hi Folks, I have a autocomplete control I am using that returns a primary key I call intPK. I want to be able to locate the contactIDPK in my dataset dsContacts based on my intPK such that once there, a user can click ''next'' and ''previous'' and continue to manipulate thru the dataset. Perhaps a better description is to be able to locate the first ''Smith'' then be able to advance the pointer backwards or forwards past all “Smith”s to ''Smothers'', for example. I have tried a variety of techniques. I have no problem finding the record in the dataset either using a dataview or table.select(). But once I find the record I can’t locate a method for moving the pointer to the record in dsContacts and displaying the record on the screen. A row object returned by the dataview or select(), best I can tell, do not divulge the position in the dataset where it was located. It appears that all search/find methods of ADO are more geared to finding and editing a single record. I sure would appreciate any ideas you might have short of looping thru every record in the massive dataset. Thanks. Tom
