Hi,
I guess it is a judgement call, but when dealing with larger tables I would probably go more
towards a grid object with a full set of command buttons for Prev, Next, First, Last, Search, etc.
Just an optionion. You can still setup an incremental search with one textbox and the grid
using the interactive change event in the textbox to perform a seek on the input value,
refresh the grid, setfocus to the grid, and setfocus back to the textbox you are inputting
into.
