Hi,
  I trying to use the vertical scroll bar in my UI to navigate between records in an Access Table. The value property
works fine but how do i scroll between the first record and the last record in both directions so i may be able to see
the entire table? Is there any way to display the record number too like the one in Access table wizard? Any help ??

Can you clarify a little bit more on that?

Do you want to display the record number of the current record or do you want to display the number of records?  or what?

A standard Scroll bar from MS, doesn't have the ability to show a pop value like Access.

But,

Answer 1..
I assume you are using a data control.

  The first step is to set the max property to the value of the number of records in your recordset:

  Put the following in your from_Activate event:

     Data1.recordset.movelast
     Data1.Recordset.movefirst    
     Vscroll1.max = data1.recordset.recordcount

  Then in the Vscroll1's change event put the following code:

        Text1.Text = VScroll1.Value & " of " & vscroll1.max
        Data1.Recordset.AbsolutePosition = VScroll1.Value
 
  The text1.text will say "1 of # of records" this will give the user the recordnumber he/she is on.


Thanks I hope this works for you....
