Hi Kevin,
Thanks for that... yes it is the physical record number I wanted to use 
and yes, the table is keyed. I didn't realise that the record numbers 
could change under  certain circumstances but really  it is a current 
table number that is relevant as the consequential report would run 
straight away so it would not matter that the Table Number had changed.

I just thought it would be more simple to just use the table number 
rather than needing to capture the key values! What is the best way then 
to capture the key values from the record in view please?

Thanks for the prompt reply.
