Creating duplicate record at the end of the block records

Hi,

I have such a problem.
When pressing duplicate record  need a duplicate record to be created after the last record in the block. The same thing i have to do when pressing insert record.
What should i write in key-duprec trigger?
Thanks.

To create a duplicate record, you simply have to put this in the key-duprec trigger:
duplicate_record;

Be aware though, that this is not limited to creating a duplicate "after the last record in the block".  The operator could press this on any record, if the default "insert record" functionality is available.

Do you want that trigger functionality changed also, so the cursor advances to the last record first, then does a "dup-rec"?  If so, then your key-crerec trigger should be:
last_record;
duplicate_record;

I'm curious though, what is significant about the "last" record that should be duplicated rather than another record in the block?  What happens if a user queries only some of the exisiting records in the table, then calls this trigger?  What if two people query all of the records at the same time, then they each call this trigger?  Must the form (or the user) modify this duplicated record before it gets saved?  If not, are you saying the table allows duplicates?
