Data Entry Question

P: n/a
We are doing data entry into an Access database form. A lot of the
names are the same but other data changes (date, address, client ...)
What I'm wondering is ... is there a function key that allows you - in
form view - to automatically copy the data entered in the preceeding
field? I've tried every combination I can think of and can't find the
right one. Thanks.
