Seriously suggest you take the time to do something like run through the
dBASE tutorial. The BROWSE object is not the best way to go here, you
should be using a form. You can then hook a SPINBOX component on the
form to the STR field. This has arrows for up and down, and clicking
those will increment and decrement the value in the field.

See the signature block below for details ...
