Query two at a time in a recordset

I am trying to retrieve records in my Access database.  I use the following code to retrieve records and place them in text fields.  However, I only allow two text boxes on my form and the results from my query are definitely more than two.  So I need to be able to collect two records at a time in a record set until I finish modifying the data in the that record set.  

How do I write the code to input the two values at a time from the queried recordset into Text1 and Text2?

esql = "select * from frm2SectionI where ID =" & Text1
        rec.Open (esql), conn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
       
 

        Text1 = rec.Fields(1)
        Text2 = rec.Fields(2)


       
        If Not rec.EOF Then rec.MoveNext
        rec.Close

why can't you do

esql = "select * from frm2SectionI where ID =" & Text1
        rec.Open (esql), conn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
if not rec.EOF = roc.BOF and rec.EOF = false then
        Text1 = rec.Fields(1)
        rec.MoveNext
end if
if not rec.EOF = roc.BOF and rec.EOF = false then
        Text2 = rec.Fields(1)
end if
rec.Close

look at the first record - then look at the second, put the first in the first box, the second in the second box

What if I want to go backwards in the same record set.  Maybe I am on record 7 and 8, but i want to go back to record 5 and 6?
