Create a new record from an existing record

951614 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated

Header Block H -> Table A with a main text field identifier called "ID" (ID fields is generated only after saving)
Multi Detail Block D1 -> Table B
Multi details Block D2 -> Table C and which is Child of Table B.

Table C is populated in the post - insert of Table B and the records of D2 are viewed in a display / read only form by clicking a Block

User wants the facility to copy the whole functionality. The requirement is to create a new record to be created with the original values of the existing record and on saving a new value should be generated in the ID field.

We can have a copy button .

We are wondering what is the approach that has to be taken for this. Will a create_record and duplicate_record work in the Copy Button

Please suggest any pointers...on what other things need to be taken that the end result a new record successfully. Would appreciate a details approach here....
