Your question it unclear .... What does "update entries to new records" mean?

This might help ...
You can copy a record in a table by clicking on the very left of it and then Ctrl+C
Then Ctrl+V on the * (Past the last record) for new duplicate record.

If record selectors are visible in a continuous form you can do the same.

We need a little more information on how you expect to do this.  A simple way is to use an append query that selects the data from one table and appends it to another or even to the same table with a different uniqueID.

If you want to do this from a form, there are two approaches.  Start by finding the record you want to copy (my choice) or go to a new record and specify which record you want to copy.  The second option leads to confusion since most people simply want to copy the "last" record but "last" has no fixed meaning in a relational database.  So, frequently it comes down to meaning "previous" which again has no fixed meaning.

Do you want to make an "audit trail" - that is, a record of changes made by the users?

If so, see this tutorial by Allen Browne: http://allenbrowne.com/AppAudit.html

If you're using 2010, you can also use Data Macros to do this: http://scottgem.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/audit-trail-using-data-macros-2/

Perhaps you should close this question since you seem to have started a new one on the same topic.
