Let us assume that we have a demand curve, Q = 100 - P, where Q is the P is the price of that good, and Q is the quantity demand at that price level.
Movement along the demand curve means that the demand function does not change, and all you are doing is changing different parts of (Q,P) along ...
This solution explains the difference between movement along the demand curve and a shift in demand.
