Default values while duplicating a record and creating a new record.

Post

     Hi..

     I have a requirement where i need to:

     a)  clear a field (Field is a URL) when a duplicate record is created.

     b) Use a default value (Field is a URL) for the same field  when a new record is created.

     I have tried to do below:

     File>Manage>Database and selected the field ..went to auto enter tab, checked the Data option leaving the field blank. This works when i create a duplicate record, but i have an issue while creating a new record.

     When i create a new record the field is left blank becuase of "Auto Enter" solution whereas i require the field to set with a default value when a new record is created. 

     Can anyone please suggest a solution for this?

     Please let me know in case you require any additional informaiton.

     Thanks
