The findbackwards statement locates the last visible record in the active database for which the specified condition is true.


This statement has one parameter:

condition – is a Boolean formula (a formula which results in a true or a false condition).


This statement scans the active database from the bottom and locates the last (closest to the bottom) visible record for which the specified condition is true.

This example makes the last visible record for John Smith the active record. If there is more than one John Smith in the database, the one closest to the bottom will be found.

find Customer = "John Smith"

See the Find statement for additional examples of how this statement can be used. FindBackwards works exactly the same as the Find statement, but from the bottom up instead of from the top down.
