what you can do is the following
For  example you have a query qryTest
In order to get all records you do qryTest.recordcount, so if you need the record before you qryTest.recordcount -1 and qryTest.recordcount +1
try this approach and let me know if you need more help

hhh...without testing it that doesnt look like it will work. i thikn that will only add one or subtract one from the record count. shouldnt i be able to do something like qrytest.recordid[i] orsomething like that?

If you want to refer back to the previous record or to the next record, you can treat the query's value like a structure..

Assuming your query is MyQuery and you have a field  myField.  This is how you can get the value of the previous record..

  MyQuery['myField'][myquery.curentRow-1]

and the next record...

  MyQuery['myField'][myquery.curentRow+1]

Of course, you have to put logic into place to be sure that you're not trying to fetch record zero or not trying to fetch a record beyond the last one..
