When opening a form...

Why show the user records they have not asked to see?
Why force a user to navigate among records to find the record they are
interested in?

What works better is to use native IBO's search mode capabilities. Have a
search panel and a grid. Go into dssSearch mode and allow the user to enter
in simple search criteria for the record they want to see. Then they post
search mode and it will show them matching records only.

Saves on bandwidth and user eye strain both.
