How you code the movement of objects vary on what you want the object to do. In the first snippet I have annotated and indented your code to explain what’s going on.

The second snippet hopefully will illustrate better methods of coding something like this.

You are welcome. The first things a beginner needs to familiarize themselves with are the most boring aspects of programming. But, once you become familiar with the concepts of data types, variables and variable scope as well as the control structures and the use of functions and subroutines, there will be no stopping you.

I have attached Nickydude's Beginners Guide to DBPro. This PDF document is a great resource for learning DBPro programming.
