VB.Net Custom BindingNavigator with SQL

I am upgrading an access database to vb.net/sql winforms.  Our customers (Police Departments) have a large amount of data in their tables.  They also 'need' the ability to scroll through records.  In access this is simple, in .Net it poses a problem.

I was going to use Datatables with all the table data, however the amount of data would not only consume too much memory, it would be too slow upon startup.

I decided to 'customize' the bindingnavigator.  The datatable(s) will hold only the first 100 records and I would also have a 'RecordPointer' where upon if the user scrolls to record 101, it will then clear out the datatable, load the next 100 records and rebind.  It seems to be working ok for the most part, however I am having a few issues.

When going past record 100, then scrolling back, it reloads the datatable but it not going back more than one record.  Here is a sample of my code that I have, maybe one of you wizards can help me on this?

Form load:


Public RecordPointer As Integer = 0
 Public Sub New()
        Try

Dim qryCreateTableCS As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM  (SELECT ROW_NUMBER()  OVER (ORDER BY IncnoID DESC) AS Row, *,CONVERT(VARCHAR, TimeComp, 108) AS newTimeComp,CONVERT(VARCHAR, Dispatched, 108) AS newDispatched,CONVERT(VARCHAR, Arrived, 108) AS newArrived,CONVERT(VARCHAR, TimeClear, 108) AS newTimeClear,CONVERT(VARCHAR, OtherTime, 108) AS newOtherTime FROM CALLSERV) AS CS WHERE Row BETWEEN 1 AND 99", connection)

            adapter.SelectCommand = qryCreateTableCS
            adapter.Fill(SPISDataSet, "dtCallServ")
 CSBindingSource1.DataSource = SPISDataSet.Tables("dtCallServ")

            BindingNavigator1.BindingSource = CSBindingSource1
 Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.ToString)
        End Try
End Sub

Private Sub btnNextRecord_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnNextRecord.Click
        RecordPointer = RecordPointer + 1

        If RecordPointer Mod 100 = 0 Then
            GetNextRecord()
        Else
            CSBindingSource1.MoveNext()
            Application.DoEvents()
            txtCurrentRecord.Text = txtCurrentRecord.Text + 1
        End If
    End Sub
Private Sub GetNextRecord()
        Dim cmd As SqlCommand
        Dim sql As String

        Dim qryCreateTableCS As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM  (SELECT ROW_NUMBER()  OVER (ORDER BY IncnoID DESC) AS Row, *,CONVERT(VARCHAR, TimeComp, 108) AS newTimeComp,CONVERT(VARCHAR, Dispatched, 108) AS newDispatched,CONVERT(VARCHAR, Arrived, 108) AS newArrived,CONVERT(VARCHAR, TimeClear, 108) AS newTimeClear,CONVERT(VARCHAR, OtherTime, 108) AS newOtherTime FROM CALLSERV) AS CS WHERE Row BETWEEN " & RecordPointer & " AND " & RecordPointer + 100, connection)

        SPISDataSet.Tables("dtCallServ").Clear()
        Application.DoEvents()

        adapter.SelectCommand = qryCreateTableCS
        adapter.Fill(SPISDataSet, "dtCallServ")

        CSBindingSource1.DataSource = SPISDataSet.Tables("dtCallServ")
         Application.DoEvents()
    End Sub
    Private Sub btnPreviousRecord_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnPreviousRecord.Click
        If RecordPointer > 1 Then
            RecordPointer = RecordPointer - 1

            If RecordPointer Mod 100 = 0 Then
                GetPreviousRecord()
            Else
                CSBindingSource1.MovePrevious()
                Application.DoEvents()
                txtCurrentRecord.Text = txtCurrentRecord.Text - 1
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub GetPreviousRecord()
        Dim cmd As SqlCommand
        Dim sql As String

        Dim qryCreateTableCS As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM  (SELECT ROW_NUMBER()  OVER (ORDER BY IncnoID DESC) AS Row, *,CONVERT(VARCHAR, TimeComp, 108) AS newTimeComp,CONVERT(VARCHAR, Dispatched, 108) AS newDispatched,CONVERT(VARCHAR, Arrived, 108) AS newArrived,CONVERT(VARCHAR, TimeClear, 108) AS newTimeClear,CONVERT(VARCHAR, OtherTime, 108) AS newOtherTime FROM CALLSERV) AS CS WHERE Row BETWEEN " & RecordPointer - 100 & " AND " & RecordPointer & " ORDER BY Incno ASC", connection)

        SPISDataSet.Tables("dtCallServ").Clear()
        Application.DoEvents()

        adapter.SelectCommand = qryCreateTableCS
        adapter.Fill(SPISDataSet, "dtCallServ")

        CSBindingSource1.DataSource = SPISDataSet.Tables("dtCallServ")
        Application.DoEvents()
    End Sub

I found out why it's only going to the first record, when I go past 100 and then back below, its because of my query.  I actually have to do a 'MoveNext' instead of a 'MovePrevious' if I am going backwards.  However, I need to figure out to only doing this when I am not in my first set of 100 records.

I can't query to see if a IncnoID is within' the first 100 records since larger PDs can use 100 records within a short period of time.  Any ideas?

I was able to get it, I set a public variable that just increments on movenext and decrements on moveprevious.

 RecordPointer = RecordPointer - 1
        If RecordPointer Mod 100 = 0 Then
            GetPreviousRecord()
        Else
            If RecordPointer > 0 And RecordPointer < 100 Then
                CSBindingSource1.MoveNext()
            Else
                CSBindingSource1.MovePrevious()
                Application.DoEvents()
            End If
        End If

        txtCurrentRecord.Text = txtCurrentRecord.Text - 1
