When using M-x multi-occur how do I go to the next buffer? It appears the results only show for the first buffer.

I cant seem to find the answer to this obvious question anywhere! NB: I am a complete Emacs novice.

Just invoke function next-error, which is typically bound to C-x ` (that last key is a backquote). It should automatically advance to the next buffer when there are no more matches in the current buffer.
