TQuery.RecNo have -1 value?
I want the same selected record
after the refresh like the dbase program
&&&&&&
recno = recno()
close
select 1
use data
go recno
&&&&&&&&&&
but the BCB program
recno = myQuery->RecNo;
myQuery->Close();
// do something
myQuery->Open();
myQuery->MoveBy(recno);
//////////////
Check the value of recno is -1.
Why? Can you tell me? Thank you!

Is this a query on an SQL database?

If so, here is the answer (cut-and-past'ed from the Help file):

"The RecNo property returns a record number for the current record in the dataset. Record numbers are only available for Paradox and dBASE tables; the concept isn't supported by most SQL servers so a table in a SQL database always returns -1 for RecNo."

HTH.
