    copy field to next record in input form (ACC97SR2)

    Hi all,

    I would like to do the following:

    When inputting <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20> data fields on an input form, I would like to have the content of a specific field "copied" to the next record, as this field is mostly not changed when I start inputting the different records.

    I know one can set a "default value" in the "design" of the input form, but I find this a bit "overdone" as the field does change when I start a new "session" of inputting data. So I would rather not use this method. <img src=/S/groan.gif border=0 alt=groan width=16 height=15>

    All suggestions are most welcome <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> .

    Best regards,

    Walter

    A very simple solution is to press Ctrl+' (apostrophe) in the control bound to the field. This will copy the value of the previous record.

    If you want an automated solution, see ACC: Fill Record w/Data from Prev. Record Automatically (95/97).

    Hans,

    Thank you for your prompt reply.
    I will go through the Micro$oft Knowledge Base as you indicated. It certainly (at first sight) looks that the answer to my question is in there.

    Should I encounter any problem implementing it, I will come back to this post.

    Best regards,
    Walter
