This question already has an answer here:

I had a debate with my co-worker about using apostrophes to show ownership of records which belongs to a page. He told me not to use an apostrophe. This is the text in question :

The Pagination in Lookup page isn’t displaying the next page’s record when a user clicks next or page number. It will show the first page’s record.

Did I make a mistake ?

    Welcome to EL&U. I do not understand what you are trying to ask; are you saying you think the apostrophes in the example are correct or not correct? They look fine to me as written (there is no rule against the Saxon genitive for inanimate objects and each page is presumably singular)— but to be honest, they are the least of your concerns here. Our sister site for English Language Learners may be of interest. – choster Oct 23 '15 at 16:49
  • I believe @choster is correct. If you were in fact asking about some other aspect of the apostrophe, please edit your question to make that clear. But in that quoted sentence, there is a lot that really is wrong, and I would suggest that ELU is not the right site for such text. – Andrew Leach Oct 23 '15 at 17:36

You did not make a mistake. This is the correct usage of the possessive apostrophe.

However, I think the first sentence may be more clearly understood with this wording:

"The Pagination in 'Lookup Page' does not display the next page's record when user clicks 'Next' or a page number. Instead, it shows the first page's record."

At least, from what you've written, this is what I think you're trying to say. :)
