Key Stroke

P: n/a

Is there a key stroke that you can use to copy the previous record into
the new record? This is in Datasheet view.
Thanks

Thanks, but I figured out if you use
Ctrl+" that works.
Once again, Thanks

I hit CTRL + and get a new record but it doesn't copy the old record to a
new one. I hit CTRL " and nothing happens. Please confirm: to copy an
existing record to a new record you hit:

Ctrl+" or Ctrl+@ on a UK keyboard but you need press that for every field.

You go to the next record, go to the desired field, then hit Ctrl"...you
should hold down the Ctrl key when you hit " I've been doing this all
afternoon and it works fine.

Your original question asks to copy the previous record.
You go to the next record, go to the desired field, then hit Ctrl"...you
should hold down the Ctrl key when you hit " I've been doing this all

Your solution here copies one field from the previous record, not the
whole record. Either you worded your original question wrong or you are
somewhat easily pleased :-)
