Move Method (ADO)

Moves the position of the current record in a Recordset object.


recordset.Move NumRecords, Start
NumRecords

A signed Long expression that specifies the number of records that the current record position moves.

Start

Optional. A String value or Variant that evaluates to a bookmark. You can also use a BookmarkEnum value.

The Move method is supported on all Recordset objects.

If the NumRecords argument is greater than zero, the current record position moves forward (toward the end of the Recordset). If NumRecords is less than zero, the current record position moves backward (toward the beginning of the Recordset).

If the Move call would move the current record position to a point before the first record, ADO sets the current record to the position before the first record in the recordset (BOF is True). An attempt to move backward when the BOF property is already True generates an error.

If the Move call would move the current record position to a point after the last record, ADO sets the current record to the position after the last record in the recordset (EOF is True). An attempt to move forward when the EOF property is already True generates an error.

Calling the Move method from an empty Recordset object generates an error.

If you pass the Start argument, the move is relative to the record with this bookmark, assuming the Recordset object supports bookmarks. If not specified, the move is relative to the current record.

If you are using the CacheSize property to locally cache records from the provider, passing a NumRecords argument that moves the current record position outside the current group of cached records forces ADO to retrieve a new group of records, starting from the destination record. The CacheSize property determines the size of the newly retrieved group, and the destination record is the first record retrieved.

If the Recordset object is forward only, a user can still pass a NumRecords argument less than zero, provided the destination is within the current set of cached records. If the Move call would move the current record position to a record before the first cached record, an error will occur. Thus, you can use a record cache that supports full scrolling over a provider that supports only forward scrolling. Because cached records are loaded into memory, you should avoid caching more records than are necessary. Even if a forward-only Recordset object supports backward moves in this way, calling the MovePrevious method on any forward-only Recordset object will still generate an error.

Note Note

Support for moving backwards in a forward-only Recordset is not predictable, depending upon your provider. If the current record has been positioned after the last record in the Recordset, Move backwards may not result in the correct current position.
