    back in the day when data was flat duplicate was a no brainer.

     

    but add just a bit of complexity by any sort of normalization of parent & child tables, the "duplicate" button is something as developers we have to map around - disable and usually very low on the priority list until the end user does a control - d or command -d , because it simply will never work, in a modern normalized solution.

     

    There needs to be some sort of wizard that will aid the developer when the end user use the Duplicate function what exactly gets duplicated and this would include all progeny records and iterate and ensure that every record is duplicated and parent and foreign keys are properly managed.
