I have a form called clients based on a table of the same.
I have several nvaigation buttons at the bottom which I put on using the wizard.

Strangely, the last button does not go to the last entry and the other buttons dont go the right one.

I would expert the "first record" button to go to the first record but it goes for one right in the middle, sequence wise. The only one which works is "add record"   !

Any insight? I have tried replacing the buttons but its the same.

much better if you upload a copy of the db, so we can see what weird things are on it to cause those behaviors

Tables do not have a logical sort order, so if you are simply using the table as your forms recordsource, the records will be presented to you in the order that they were entered (probably), which may not be the order you would like them in.

Create a query based on your table, but sorted the way you want it.  Then change the forms Record Source to that query and see whether the buttons do what you expect

Thanks for replies.

I think I have fixed it. The "order by " property for the main form seems to have been the postcode rather than the clients ID.

I have changed it and this seems to work ok.

Did you discover the forms order by property before or after you read my comment?

I am not sure, I think I did, but I am happy to award points for the avoidance of doubt unless there any objections from others.
