Creating new record with default values

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm trying to use a (simple) form to create a new record, with all
values being default values coming from a previous form. My problem is
that I can save that new record only if I change one of the default
values, something which is not supposed to be done. So is there a way
to create the record without making any change to the 'default form'?
Thank you for your help!

Why do you want to store the record with exactly the same values as the
previous?

If you have a key/index set to "no duplicates" (as you should) then Jet will
not let you have two identical records. If you really must have the same
info multiple times (and I can't think why you would), add an autonumber
field to your table and form and remove any other unique index. You then
can save two (or more) records that have the same values in all fields,
except the autonumber.
