Go to Previous Record



The Go to Previous Record action displays the previous record in current index/query order. This option is a staple part of record navigation.


  1. Make a selection in the Go to previous record in which Form/Browse window? field. This field will be grayed out unless this action is based on a Form or Browse. The choices are:

    • "Current Form or Browse Window".

    • "Another Form or Browse Window".

  2. If you selected "Another Form or Browse Window", in the Window Name field select either:

    • "Forms"

    • "Browses"

  3. Select one of the listed forms or browses.

  4. If you selected a form in step 3, optionally select whether you are working with the form ( Parent Level ) or with an Embedded Layout.

  5. If you selected "Embedded Layout" in step 4, click the 'down' icon button to select an embedded form or browse.

  6. Click Next >.

  7. Optionally modify the comment that describes the action.

  8. Click Finish.
