GO | GOTO Command

JavaScript Editor js editor     Web development 



Main Page

Moves the record pointer to the specified record number. There are multiple versions of the syntax.

GO [RECORD] nRecordNumber [IN nWorkArea | IN cTableAlias]
GO TOP | BOTTOM [IN nWorkArea | IN cTableAlias]
GOTO [RECORD] nRecordNumber [IN nWorkArea | IN cTableAlias]
GOTO TOP | BOTTOM [IN nWorkArea | IN cTableAlias]

Parameters

RECORD nRecordNumber


Specifies the physical record number to move the record pointer to. You can omit GO or GOTO entirely and specify just the record number. If you specify just the record number, you can move the record pointer only within the current work area.
IN nWorkArea


Specifies the work area of the table in which the record pointer is moved.
IN cTableAlias


Specifies the alias of the table in which the record pointer is moved.
TOP


Positions the record pointer on the first record in the table. If the table has an ascending index in use, the first record is the record with the lowest key value. If the index is in descending order, the first record is the record with the highest key value.
BOTTOM


Positions the record pointer on the last record in the table. If the table has an ascending index in use, the last record is the record with the highest key value. If the index is in descending order, the last record is the record with the lowest key value.

Remarks

GO and GOTO can be used interchangeably. These commands operate on the table in the current work area unless you specify another work area with the IN clause.

Example
