Newbies ivanoconfa Posted February 27, 2005 Newbies Share Posted February 27, 2005 Hello, I'm referring to an old post about returning to a specific record - in my case, after having conducted searches and omitted some records plus created new records- and to the following replies: You may want to try the simple expedient of stashing the record ID in a global at the beginning of your process, and then finding the record via that global at the end. In a very large file this can be a bit slow, but it's guaranteed to work, at the least. and the incomprehensible: Indexed finds are very fast, even with large databases. However, it may be easier to use a self-join relationship between the global field you are storing the last record ID in and the record ID field. Then use a Go to Related record  script step to jump to the record. Well, I followed the first advice and when tried: Go to Record/Request/Page ["my global field"], I cannot get back to the original record. It seems that as I omit records the unique ID assigned to my original record changes and let's say record ID 200 becomes 208 because I omitted 8 records. Can anyone help in simple terms?
