Sometimes you want to make a duplicate copy of a record. Perhaps you're entering products and you have two products are very similar except for a few details. You can duplicate the record and just change the different fields. This video will teach you how to do it with a single click.


There is no Extended Cut for this video.

If you want to duplicate a record that has related child records, such as an Order with Order Details, then you'll need some VBA programming. I cover this in Access Developer 24.

How do you duplicate the record of the form along with the subform. SO my main form is Purchase Order and the details of that order is in the sub form. Naturally they are linked by the PO#. Shall be thankful to have some help on this.

It's right in the text above under Links. It's a much more advanced concept that will require some programming.
