Repeat value of previous record field into current corresponding field

P: 1
Hi
I've been using the 2 year old link below to repeat values from previous record field into current corresponding field. It's worked fine for text but the last piece of advice was to use the same logic for a date field. i.e.

theValue.defaultvalue = "#" & theValue.value & "#"

I can't get this to work for some reason and I can't figure out why. Can anyone out there help?

Thanks

Repeat value of previous record field into current corresponging field
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Something really common I'm sure and I'm surprised it's not just a field
property option.

The previous record's field value can be retrieved and copied into the
current corresponding field by the operator hitting CTRL+APOSTROPHE on the
new field but I would like this to occur with the user having to strike any
keys.

Suggestions?

Thanks,

Loren

It *is* a field property.

In the AfterUpdate event of the control (let's say it is called
theValue), put

theValue.defaultvalue = theValue.value

If theValue is text, do this:

theValue.defaultvalue = "'" & theValue.value & "'"

Thank You very much.

The above event/code worked fine for a text type control but not for a date
type. Can someone please tell me what to use to propagate a date field?

Thanks.

same concept, except with # signs
theValue.defaultvalue = "#" & theValue.value & "#"
