I'm assuming it's a power seat, if so it sounds like the switch itself is bad on the side of the seat. The other possibility although I doubt it, is that the power motor is bad or has a loose wire stopping it from moving the seat upward. Try removing the switch and seeing if the contact points are corroded or if the switch is not making good contact.

Front drivers seat will not slide back and forth.


No, check for a blockage in the seat track. You have one power source for all seat functions. If it works one way but not the others it is either a bad switch, or bad motor, or a blockage.

Yukon XL driver side seat not working


There is a seat module under the seat that reads the inputs from the switches and then sends power to the motors, disconnect and reconnect and it may reset. If not you will have to check inputs at module.There is more than one connector on it, you will have to disconnect the power supply.

My driver side seat will not move forward or backward


Can you hear the motor turn when trying to go back and forth? If not, motor may be faulty or bad relay in the wiring to that motor.
If you hear motor and seat doesn't move, then the motor may have fallen off track

Driver seat not moving back and forth


under the seat is a thin wire that goes from one side to the other it has most likely broke you need to find the secondary lock it was connected to and release it to move the seat but you must also release the main lock so i suggest replacing the wire . THIS IS FOR MANUEL SEATS 
now as for power seats you will have to locate the power lead wire and make sure it is not broke if so you can replace the connecter with an aftermarket one and it may work again
