RESHOWING ADOGRID  WHEN I WANT TO GO BACKWARDS FROM ROW 30000 TO ROW 100

While typing in a txtbox on event change I do this to let the grid scroll with any
character typed
Only one problem  ,  first records starts at  AB-001  untill ZZZ-9999 last,
grid has 30000 records,  so when I start typing e.g.   NIC-123 grid scrolls
ok to first found,    but if I make type error like NIX- and do backspace
grid is not scrolling  backwards because it passed that row already
How to make it scrolling backwards  specialy if you would go like back to N,
or even back to nothing and want to start with e.g. BA  etc.
Clicking op adocontrol <<  would solve but thats not what I want.

Private Sub TxtCustomerSearch_Change()
Dim Count As Integer
Dim LastRow As Boolean
On Error GoTo ErrHandle:
    Count = 0
    Do Until LastRow
        Customgrid.Row = Count
        Customgrid.Col = 1
        If UCase(Mid(Customgrid.Text, 1, Len(TxtCustomerSearch.Text))) = UCase(TxtCustomerSearch.Text) Then
            DisplayFields
            exit sub
            End If
       Count = Count + 1
    Loop
  ErrHandle:
End Sub

Determine if the backspace key was pressed and set your counter = -1 instead of +1

If life was that simple,  if you take a good look at source you will see that depending
on value of keyhit it could be that differance between last hit(and thus bookmark in grid) and keyvalue before doing backspace based on alfa value can be more then -1 could be -80 as example.

Doesn't your code loop through the rows looking for the text string that has been typed so far?

the problem will be in adogrid that only last 60 records read are in memory/buffer/screen whatever you name it. so even putting customgrid.Row =0 won't work if the bookmark is due to typing e.g. YX-123  allready something like 20000, so lowering custogrid.Row even with 200 will not reshow grid on screen, so how about 10000 backwards.

If this is being displayed in a grid it should be a datagrid.  Instead of using an ado control to handle the recordset your probably going to have to handle it yourself.  That means declaring a recordset and filling it with all 30K records and then use that as the data source for your grid so you can see all the records.  As you scroll you'll scroll through the recordset object and then refresh the datagrid to match the current state of the recordset to keep them in sync.
