I've searched, and searched.... to no avail.  What I want to do seems extremely simple (it would manually take me SECONDS), but I want to automate it.  Here's what I am trying to do (this applies only to the current record/database.  I'm not trying to cross data between databases/records at all).

 

I want to take the automatically generated "Mission ID" from the top of my form, copy that number, and paste it into the field labelled "barcode" (it's a text field, but would preferably be a 'viewer' field.  I have a font and size setup in the Barcode field, that will turn that number into a barcode and make it an appropriate size.  How do I do this?

 

Literally, it comes down to "copy/paste" the Mission ID numbers, into the barcode field....

 

Thank you for all your help!!!
