I have a link that I want to jump to the last page of a repeating recordset.   I need the recordset to fill in date order starting with the oldest and ending in the newest for printing purposes.   What I need is that when the page opens it shows the page with the latest record WITHOUT changing the recordset from ascending order to descending.

Hi wharris26,

Yes.  You can use the Page Navigation Server behaviors to create links to First / Last pages.

I have recordset page navigation set up once you are on the page, so they can go there and click to the last page.  I am trying to eliminate that step so they go directly to the last page.  Can those server behaviors be set so that when users use the link to navigate to the page, they are automatically sent to the last page of the recordset?

Yes, just copy the code from the recordset navigation for the last page to the link.

It should work.  All in all, links are links.  You may need to have the same Recordset defined on the page holding the original link, though.
