What I would do is use set variable for the "name" you want to copy over. Then use Go to Layout (Whatever you want to go to) and then Set field equal to "name" ,whatever variable you used. Does this help?
I think you'll need a script step "New Record/Request" after going to the target table and before Setting the Field.
"allow creation" won't help much for this task.
To sum up the posts of others, your script would look something like this:
Set Variable [$Name ; Table1::Name ]
Go to Layout ["Table2" (Table2) ]
Set Field [Table2::Name ; $Name ]
Just substitute your table and field names for those used in this example.
Note: When Setting up Set Field, there are two Specify buttons that must be clicked. To get Set Field [Table::Field ; Expression], add set field to your script and click the first button (specify target field). Select Table::Field from the list of fields. Do not click the specify button next to the repetition box. Click OK to close this dialog box. Now click the lower specify button (calculated result) and create the expression to the right of the semicolon (;). Do not try to type in the semicolon.
