When I am doing a name search in SCOMIS that yields more than 99 pages, why does the page number bounce back to 90 and continue incrementing up to 99 again?
The SCOMIS Search Index program is designed to act this way. The program uses an internal table to page through the names. The table only has room for 99 pages, so when it reaches this maximum, it shifts all of the data in the table down ten pages (eliminating the first ten pages of names already stored) and restarts the page number on the screen at 90 for the next ten pages.
If the search returns over ten more pages, this cycle happens again and the user will see the page number bounce back to 90 once more. Each time this happens, the new ten pages worth of information is being displayed; eventually, all of the returned data will show.
