Cloning Records In Same Table
Posted on 1999-08-02
I would like to know what is the easiest way to copy a record in a table. Let me give you the specifics....
1) Useing DBase as the backend.
2) Would like to copy a specific record that displays on a form that is called to display all the copied data except the unique identifier. Also, don't want the record to post until the users verifies to save it.
More specific example.
Application is displaying a guest information record with the guest id being unique. User hits a button to clone record and a new guest information form is called displaying all the same (copied) data except the unique guest id, which the user must then input (they can also change edit any of the other data fields) User then can either save the new (copied) record or abort it (not post it).
I looked at using the batch move component and possibly creating a record or array, but need to know if I'm missing something or if I'm heading in the right direction with one of the approaches I've listed above.
