So I have a read-only grid displayed on a site through an interface. The summary is also displayed through an interface, and the summary of a record is pictured below.
What I want to do is add a button, going to the next or previous record so that the user doesn't have to click the home button in the top-left.
I found this thread but wasn't sure how to apply it to my situation (not completely sure how to apply a!query):

Depending on what "next" and "previous" actually means, in terms of sorting your records, you would just need to add the buttons and an a!save() which loads that next/previous record into a local variable. Then your interface will display the just fetched data.
Did you already try something?
I haven't tried anything yet, but I will try that!
So I would add the buttons and put the a!save into where the button's codes are as well? And would the a!localvariable just be wrapped around the a!save/the buttons? It's just hard to visualize that without any examples
Yes. Like here: docs.appian.com/.../recipe-refresh-data-using-a-refresh-button.html
Regarding local variables, I try to use only one global scope of local variables on top of my code. Nesting multiple a!localVariables() can be done but is rarely needed.
I tried creating an entity but it needs a data store which I don't have. This seems pretty complicated, I might just search the discussion board to hopefully find a different way
What do you mean with "creating an entity"? For what purpose? The recipe I shared is just an inspiration which you will need to adapt to your needs.
