Copy records with Macro to other fields

Hi Expert,

In Access 2016, how can we copy records from one field to another in the same table, with a macro?

When/How would you do this? When the user clicks a button, or when some event occurs?

In general, it's a bad idea to duplicate data like this, unless you're copying over a record to set "default" values - that is, you will "duplicate" the data, but you're going to update one or more fields after you duplicate.

Yes. Study my simple and fast code in this old question: Clone Record

Copying should happen when the user clicks on a button.

A update query made it possible. It works.

Thanks Ryan
