Mark a Record as a Duplicated Record


     I'm using FileMaker Pro 12 for Windows. I have a database with several thousand records in it. Occasionally, a user will duplicate a record so as to not have to re-key all of the data. Then they can just make changes to the fields that need it. Each record has a unique identifier, a serial number created when the record is created (Record Identifier). Is there a way to identify that record as a duplicated record automatically, when the duplicate record is created? I only want this to apply to duplicated records, not when a new record is created manually.

     Any help or suggested would be greatly appreciated.
