    Default Function to return field value from NEXT record

    I do a lot of ad hoc field update operations using the "previous" function that returns the field value from the "previous" record. Is there a function that returns the field value from the "next" record?

    I'm a novice and really appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks.

    No.
    There can be only one.

    If you indexed your database in 'reverse', would using the previous function (which I have never used) pull from the 'next'.
