    Default duplicating a previous field entry

    I used Alpha Four some 15 years ago, and really appreciated that I could press one key and duplicate a field entry in the new record. In other words, if I had to enter the same county name in 15 different records, it only took one key-press to do it. Is there any way to do this in Alpha Five?

    Thank you for your quick reply, but I really don't know what you mean. Could you please just explain in a few sentences what I should do to duplicate a field entry?

    Take the link that I put in the message and paste it in the address portion of your browser. It is another message that explains the process.

    Here it is again.
