Duplicate and Auto-Enter

When you duplicate a record, any of FileMaker's native options such as serial number, creation date/time, modification date/time are all updated. However, my attempts to use any of those as a trigger within an auto-enter calc for me has failed.  I can accomplish this via scripting and/or custom menus, but I do not feel I should have to rely on that considering the nature of what I am trying to accomplish.

I want to update my custom UUID when a record is duplicated.


My hat is off to the developer that can point me in the proper direction.
