Hi Alex,
Thanks for the insight on the behavior of a Base form. In your reply you
suggested that I put in a request for enhancement after checking to see if
the same behavior occurred with LO 3.6. It behaves the same way. I have no
clue as to how to go about putting in a request for enhancement. Any help
would be appreciated.

Incidentally, the delay in the change of the window display is barely
noticeable as I cycle through the records. The caching you refer to
apparently works well on this aspect of the form behavior.

Hi Hank,

ith the same result. Is this a bug? Has anyone noticed this  type of

behavior ? Base seems to start out handling records in increments of
40 records until it finds the end of the file. Strange.

This is the programmed behaviour. Whether, as a UI experience, it is
normal, is a matter of debate ;-)

The result set is cached, and the window display also caches part of the
result set to avoid performance penalties by not having to redraw all
elements of the window, hence the misleading information. Some work was
done recently in 3.6/3.7/4.0 development to improve this handling, but it
was mainly around the window refresh area from what I recall, as other
changes to the code had caused this bit to be even slower, and not refresh
at all, or at best take so long about it that the user got a blank screen

So, at the moment, your best bet is probably to put in a request for
enhancement, after having tested on LO 3.6.x to see if there's any
difference when compared to 3.5.x.
