I have never been a fan of the Status Toolbar and prefer to roll my own. I use a grouping of four buttons and a calc field. The four buttons are set with the basic script steps "Go to Record", next, previous, first and last. The calc is very old and probably could be redone, but here it is:
"Record " & Get ( RecordNumber ) & " of " & Get ( FoundCount ) & Case ( Get ( FoundCount ) = Get ( TotalRecordCount ) ; " Total" ; " Found" )
set indexing to "Do not store"
Thank you so much! This totally gave me what I needed.
