Right...but if the select was:

select id where emp = '1111'

And emp '1111' had 100 records in it, then the record set would have
100 records, so the question (rephrased) is:

Given the above record set (100 records of emp '1111') how do I:

1) Locate the ONE record where the date is '5-17-2012'?
2) Move the cursor from that position to the record just prior?

Is a valid assumption that there will be only one row [or zero rows] matching the specified date; i.e. there can not be multiple rows for the same date for any one value of EMP? That would make selection easier; i.e. no requirement to combine the Date and Time columns into a TimeStamp column.

Is the goal perhaps to find the one "record just prior"; i.e. perhaps there really is no need to get a set with both rows, thus no reason to scroll.
