Launching an Access form with pre-filled fields

hydrazi asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-28

I am very lost in trying to get a button on a form to launch a second form using values entered in the first.  Basically, it is a quote form and I would like the users to hit a button to turn it into an Order.  Many of the field values should carry over from the Quote form to the Order form.

I can get the button to insert the record into an Order table, but not open and pre-populate a form.

Any direction is greatly appreciated.
