    I posted a while ago about an Access database I was working on to help better organize our IT department. Long story short, it's pretty good for the time being, but there are a few things I'm still trying to work out to make data entry easier.

    In particular, I have a new order form that adds records for each line item in a purchase order. At times, I have multiple items that are going to the same location with the same order number, order total, order date, user assigned, business unit charged, etc.

    It would be extremely easy to fill out the form at the beginning of one of these orders and simply click a "Copy Current Record" button which would duplicate the record to a new one where I could then modify the few things that I'm required to (e.g., Product ID).


    I've already got an "Add New Record" button that we can use to start with a new record built from some out-of-the-box functions in Access.


    Any ideas for an easy "copy current record to new record" button I can add to help speed things up?
