My table has over 6000 records, but when first displayed, bottom and navigation bar says "record 1 of 61*" when i click on last record button,it will take me to record 6210 of 6210. How can i get it to display correct number from start?

If you're always working on the same database (or want to go through this trouble on any database you work with) you could add a macro on Form Open to force BASE to jump out to the last record and then jump back. Something like this... dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:LastRecord","",0,Array()) and then dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:FirstRecord","",0,Array())

My understanding is that, for reasons of efficiency, Base only loads a certain MINIMUM number of records for display purposes when looking at a table listing. For example, see attached screenshot. Note, the little asterisk next to the apparent total number of records - that * means the number of displayed record is fewer than the actual total number. So, AFAIK (and I am not a programmer), this behaviour 'built in', and cannot be changed in the user-interface. There's probably no real reason why it has to be so - it's perhaps just a 'legacy' of this software's development.Base_1_of_99_record_count.png
