Dynamics CRM dialog - change fields in a copy of an appointment

I would like to use a dialog to create an appointment from an existing appointment and then allow the user to change specific fields, such as Subject and Regarding, in the new appointment.
I can create a copy of the existing appointment in a dialog but I'm having difficulty incorporating the Prompt and Response so that the fields in the copy of the appointment are changed.  Any help is appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't think you can do this for all fields, such as Regarding. Regarding is a special type of lookup where a user can select a record of almost any time. I don't think there is a way to do this in a dialog.

However, for the subject field, you can capture a new value in a prompt and response step and then use an update record step on the new appointment (which must be created before the prompt and response step). In the update step, select the subject (in the new appointment) to a dynamic value. In the Look for box scroll to the end of the list to find and select the name of the prompt step and in the next box select Response Text.

Hope this helps.
