 Pdox 4.5 Win ObjectPAL help!
Hi folks!

I've got more buttons than can fit on 1 screen in
my application so I put the overflow on a 2nd page.
Everything works fine except that the user must
do a second search when switching pages to get to
the same record she works with.  Is there any way
to get the table pointers to always point to the same
record?  Everytime you go to a new page for the first
time, the record pointer is at the beginning of the
database.  

I'd appreciate any help!

Clint

See the online help regarding the resync()  and movetorecord() methods - one of these should help
you

Sounds like an odd programming problem to me.  Moving from one page to another
on a form will not cause the record-position to change on any of the tables in
the form's data model.  You would not experience this problem if you created
that form from scratch...  check your methods carefully.
