    clicking through from record to record on form

    I have a bound form which is used for inserting records and viewing existing records. If I open an existing record I want to be able to click the forward and back buttons at the foot of the form to move from record to record, how can I do this???

    I didnt build the form and have limited access from experience. Presently when I open a record I do see:

    Record: (back arrow) and (forward arrow)

    on the bottom however the back button is grayed out and I am only allowed to clik forward which clears the form and alllows me to enter a new record only.

    -----------------updated info:
    I have been researching this and am fast coming to the conclusion a bound form can not use the record navigation, or at least this one cant. SHould I be able to???

    May I add this to the scenario - When I open the form as if I am entering a new record the navigation works. However if I open an exisitng record it does not. I have even turned off the navigation and using controls created my own. This also works and fails in the same way described.

    Any ideas???

    your question is not database related, this should be posted in the forum for the specific front end application you are viewing the records.
