hyperlink - dont want it to move to top of page

I am showing rows of records.
I want to be able to click on a hyperlinked edit image for a particular row and want the row to be changed to a form entry via ajax. I am encountering it such that the row changed to a form entry but the page goes to the top... I had to scroll down back to the row in order to do editing.

Is it possible to do it such that it will not move up to the top but rather remain at that row and if possible to set focus on a edited field?

what sort of <a href.. type of coding should I use to prevent moving to top?
