Macro to copy a record and paste within a table?

I have a table of part numbers and associated information. When I add a new part number, I'd like to use a macro that copies a specified older part and pastes it with a specified new part number. I can't seem to find a function that does this

Copy and Multiple Paste
I would like to be able to copy a single record in a table and then paste this record a pre-defined number of times 10,20,30 depending on requirements. The reason I need to do this is that I want to set up a number of identical records that can easily be amended into unique records.

This will vastly reduce the amount of work and time spent entering records individually.

The only way that I have been able to achieve this is to copy and transfer the master record into Excel, and then copy the row and paste it into a range of cells. Copy the range of cellsback from Excel and then paste this range back into the Access table.


Copy and Paste macro
I need to create a short cut menu in 2007 that will have the copy and paste command. I went to Access help and it showed how to create a shortcut menu using a macro but when I attempted to create this macro I could not find copy or paste in the ACTION column. I also looked in the RunCommand Action arguments and did not find them. I have hidden all the default menus and ribbons but now I need to create a shortcut menu to copy and paste and attach to a form


Copy record in same table
I would like to copy a record and past it in the same table.
I want to use a button on a form to do this, of course you could go into the table and manualy copy and paste the record, but I don't like my users to go into the table.

the table name is PROJECT and I want to copy one record with all of its contents. The primary key is Auto numbering.
The table containts more than 100 columns


Copy and Paste Select Fields
Trying to Copy selected fields from Current Record in Form [ENTRY]. The Table [INSERTS] has a AutoNumber field which appears to prevent copying and pasting the entire record. The preferred method would be to copy select fields
[ADVERTISER]
[ACCOUNT NUMBER]
[SALESPERSON]
[ZONES HD]
[ZONES SC]
[ZONES STATE]
create a NEW record and paste those values into the new record. The new record would then be visible on the form for additional entry.
I can manually copy and paste the entire row from within the table but cannot get it to work any other way. The Duplicate Record function errors.Append Query errors. Working in Access 2010.


Macro to copy linked table to local

Multiple record paste
I'm sure this has been asked a hundred times, but I cannot find a good answer. In a table, I am trying to copy paste from one field, one record (cell), into multiple records of that same field or any field I wish. Basically, I would love to highlight any range, whether it is single or multiple records and rows, and paste over where I choose. So if in records 1, 2, and 3, I highlight and copy the values in field A, how do I paste these values in records 4, 5, and 6 of field A, B, etc. I know I'm thinking in Excel mode, but I generally do not manually input my data in Access, but rather dump reports through Monarch


Button to copy fields then a button to paste them into another record.
But I was merely looking as I was not upto the stage of incorporating it. I am now at that stage,

What do I need to do to be able to copy certain fields in one record via a copy butto and then go to another existing record and by clicking another button, Paste, will fill in the copied fields.

I have different fields like:
Survey Date - Which is a date selector.
Surveyor - Which is a combo box.
KitchenRenewYear - Which is a text box.

If Someone was willing to start me off with how to do this then I can use the code for the remainder of the fileds I want to copy.

Copy query
In the past, I can copy any existing query and paste as a copy so I can modify based on the old one for a new query. Suddenly I can copy the query but cannot paste into query group as the paste feature becomes grey (not available). What did I do causing paste feature disable?


Macro will not paste
Is there a way to get a macro to paste information copied from a form field in the parameter value window that the query will be based off of?

I am able to get the macro to navigate to the specified field and copy the contents, then opens the report which runs the query but stops at the parameter value window and does not paste the contents in. If I use ctrl+v, it does paste the information in and I can then press the ok button and have the report pop up. I want it to do this automatically and not require the user to enter the information themselves or have to push ctrl+v and then select the OK button.

Is this possible to do within Access itself or does this need to be performed via VBA?

Copy and Paste Data Into an Indexed Table
We have created a split database which allows my manager to update the data in the table on a weekly basis. The table is indexed in order to speed up time it takes to search for the records from the front end.

Every week we have to add records to the access table from an excel spreadsheet. My manager likes to copy and paste the new records into the existing table. If we continue to add records to the indexed table via copy and paste, will the table automatically stay indexed or will this slow the response time down.

How to Copy a Field and Paste in Another Table
Newbe question. This is my first program. Access 2010

Have a table, Log Food, and need to populate a field called Food ID from another table, Food, with the same field name. My plan is to have a form Log Date and a subform Log Food with a button to lunches a pop-up form called Select Food. Im unable to figure out how to copy Food ID from the Select Food form and paste it in Food ID in the Log Food form/table. Im also thinking this method could be used to edit or add a record in Log Food. I was hoping it would be something like

[Log Food]![Food ID]=[Food]![Food ID]

Needless to say, it didnt work and Ill be the first to say I dont know what Im doing. I do have the tables and forms.

Is this a macro or VBA problem? Does the code go in Log Food form or the Select Food form? Could someone let me know how this should be done


Error 3211 - locked table?
I took a copy of my backend database file so that I could apply my changes that I had been working on. The first copy I had was given to me. I did a copy and a paste into my area.

I enabled the database to make mods. I recreated my macro and module onto the new database. When I attempt to run it I get the message that my table is locked when I attempt to append the first new field.

My table and or database is not open by anyone but me trying to add some columns.


Copy Paste multiple records
I have a module that copies a record then pastes into a listbox, is there a way to copy and paste multiple records or can I do it by pasting the second record by inserting a new line at the end of the used listbox


Paste Append not working
I've recently been forced to migrate to Access 2007 (much prefer 2003 unlike Excel and Word!)

I've got a problem with locking down a database and creating a custom toolbar to Paste Append records. The aim is that the user should be able to manually select and copy records from one table to another via the clipboard. When I add Paste Append it is disabled. When I use Paste, it creates a brand new table and pastes all the records in there rather than the one selected. (Also the user isn't even allowed to see the new table as I have intentionally hidden all extraneous windows and functionality). So.at present, I've had to leave the users with instructions to use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V and remove all ribbons and toolbars, which is less than ideal for many users. I want my cut, copy, paste and paste append


Copy & Paste ACCESS Report Design
I need several Reports which are very similar to each other. I have designed the first Report. Now I want to know how I can copy & paste the first Report so that I can generate several other identical Reports.

Then I plan to perform some minimal chages to the copied Report design. Do I copy/paste the Report itself, or do I copy/paste the Report design?
