Can you setup a confirmation question before a script is run?

Post

     I've setup a script that inserts the values from the last visited record on certain fields.  The problem is that it over-writes anything that may be in the field already entered.   The pupose is to enter these fields on a new record, but at times the Ipad users forget to first create a new record.   So they run the script and overwrite their current record fields.  

     Is there a way to either - 

     As a confirmation question once the script is run where the user has to hit yes or no before the script is run

     OR

     modify the script that it will not overwrite existing field data?

     Also - I've noticed when running this script that it does not always run as expected.  At times it pulls the data from the last record visited.  But sometimes it is just pulling the data from the last record in the database.   Also at times it hangs up and instead of working it just moves the cursor into one of the last fields in that layout and i have to delete that record and create a new.   Any ideas?
