On the empty form if you place the name of the field from the previous form in the field Value and make the field a computed on composed.  Then set the  form default value to inherit values from selected form oncreate the values should pull through when you compose the document

If you are using an @ command on the button to compose the form

try this:

1. Make all the fields you wish to pull values through on the empty form computed on composed.

2. In the form properties on the empty form. Select from the default tab Inherit values from selected fields on create

3. Place the name of the fields which you wish to pull through on the previous form as the value of the field on the empty form.

4. Save this form and try and create the form now the fields should pull though when the form is created

If you are using script o to create the form

Try using the FieldGetText and the FieldSetText in the uidoc class

Hope this helps
