record template

P: n/a
Hello All

I'm using Access 2K and Access 2003 with either Win2K or XP.
A database for control plans exists. But one customer would like
a button or hotkey to copy a given record, then paste all the data
into a new record. The record number would be new, and the customer
would make changes to one or two fields to finish the new record. There
are approximately 100 fields and two subforms in this database. This
would save a lot of time entering new records that are very similar.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thank You for any help

create a query that points to the current record.

FROM ....
WHERE RecordID = Forms![FormTheButtonIsOn]![PrimaryKeyOnForm]

Then turn it into an insert query so it appends to the same table. And
remove the Primary key field from the insert statement.
