Button Creation Question
I am trying to create a button that will allow me to populate new record with the previous records information. Is this possible? If so, what is the best way to do it?
That would depend on the design of your database and your precise definition of "previous record".
Depending now how/what you're doing, you can set up a script to save the info you want in temporary variables, then either create the new record and fill in fields with the temporary values, or run another script once you're in a record to do it. Again, all depends on design and what you want it to do.
