    Duplicate Record without using a script

      I want to duplicate a record multiple times and then just change one or two elements in one or two data fields as simply as possible.  Similar to a copy&paste action, then edit the changed information in the pasted record.

       

      For example, let's say I have a data base that logs the sunrise time by date.  The record format has ten fields, eight of which are the same for every record, and only two fields, date and time, change for each record.  All other fields remain the same.  I would like to create the first record, say the first day of the month, and then duplicate the record 30 times. then only the date and the time need to be edited for each successive record.

       

      What is the best (easiest) method to do this?
