Move the position of the current record in a Recordset object.

      expression.Move(Rows, StartBookmark)

   Rows          The number of rows the position will move.
                 If rows is greater than 0, the position is
                 moved forward (toward the end of the file). 
                 If rows is less than 0, the position is moved
                 backward (toward the beginning of the file).
   StartBookmark A bookmark. Begin the move relative to this
                 bookmark instead of the current record.

The Move methods move from record to record without applying a condition.

Attemting to move past either BOF or EOF will raise an error, you can trap this error with If .BOF Then

On a forward-only-type Recordset object, the rows argument must be a positive integer and bookmarks aren't allowed. This means you can only move forward.

To make the first, last, next, or previous record in a Recordset the current record, use either the MoveFirst, MoveLast, MoveNext, or MovePrevious method.
