Record copy in DA?

Record copy in DA?

Hi,

I'm using DA to recreate a site built in another php generator that has a copy record function. The client wants this functionality. My thoughts on this are that I can create a DA insert form, pass the primary key of the record to be copied, use that primary key to filter a recordset that contains the data to be copied to the new record from the one selected and use those dynamic values to populate the insert form fields with the values of the existing record. Obviously, the primary key can only be used to filter the recordset.

Does this sound like a plan? If not, are there easier (better) ways to copy records with DA or other WA tools?

This may also be a request for the next version of DA, which I love working with. If the above plan works it should be fairly simple to add to DA as an option when generating the code.

Thanks for any help on this,

Tony
