Dupplicate record problem

I am trying to duplicate a main form's record and records from the subform or child table.

When I run the following code the form should move to the new record and supply the DuplicateOrderDetails Apend query with the new Account code. But The form stays on the current record and just copies the data to the same data set?

Dim dbs As DAO.Database, rst As DAO.Recordset
Me.txtAccountCode = Me.AccountCode
Me.txtItemNumber = Me.Details.Form.ItemNumber

' Return Database variable pointing to current database.
Set dbs = CurrentDb
Set rst = Me.RecordsetClone

'On Error GoTo Err_btnDuplicate_Click

' Tag property to be used later by the append query.
Me.Tag = Me![AccountCode]

' Add new record to end of Recordset object.
With rst
   .AddNew
     
      !CustomerName = Me!CustomerName
      !ProjectRef = Me!ProjectRef & " B"
      !Phone = Me!Phone
      !Fax = Me!Fax
      !Email = Me!Email
      !Ref = Me!Ref
      !OrderNumber = Me!OrderNumber
      !CustomerOrderNumber = Me!CustomerOrderNumber
      '!DateCreatedProject = Me!TodaysDate
     
   .UpDate                     ' Save changes.
   .Move 0, .LastModified
   
End With

MsgBox "new account code is  " & [txtAccountCode]
Me.Bookmark = rst.Bookmark
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
DoCmd.OpenQuery ("DuplicateOrderDetails")

I am pretty sure that the Tag property is redundent code.

Also on occation I get chinese writing in my tables. See attached

Try .Move 1, .LastModified
The Chinese seems to be a mask.

This works for me:

   .UpDate                     ' Save changes.
   .MoveLast
   Me.Bookmark = .Bookmark

I think the chinese is me trying (unthinkingly) to add text to a number field.

What's the difference between .Move 0 and .Move 1?

move 1 will move down 1 row, which would seem what you want to do.

p.s. I'm not sure why you use a append query to add the data instead of a record set.

Is a record set different from a query?
