 | **Goto** | A database command that positions the record pointer in the current work area at the specified identity. In an Xbase data structure, this identity is the record number because every record, even an empty record, has a record number. In data structures of different design, identity may be defined as something other than record number. \\ \\ **Shortcut:​** CTRL+G| | **Goto** | A database command that positions the record pointer in the current work area at the specified identity.
