How do I duplicate the values of multiple fields for all new records based on the unbound text box that have been filled?

Last Modified: 2014-05-21
I am using Access 2007.  I have a form with 2 parts:  The form header consists of unbound textboxes and a Duplicate Fields Flag Option button.  If the textboxes are filled (they could all be filled or some) and if the duplicate fields flag option is yes, then I want the text in the unbound boxes to be filled in the bound text boxes in the detail section.  Then I want the cursor to move to the (Detail section in the form) to the Pounds field.  At that poin the data entry person will update the pounds field, BFat, Prot, OS and SCC and take them to a new record.  Again the value from the duplicate Fields should be filled in the new record. I have tried some code, but does not seem to work.  I cannot seem to get to the new record.
