Well, without knowing what the script is that is executing, it would be hard
to give you an answer. Can you post the script you're executing?

You should be able to use 'revDB_moveprev' in order to move back one record
at a time. Rather than using a cursor (recordset), it may be more efficient

variable (or array) and then walk though that. If you need help in doing
this, please let us know.
