Can I set up DBMan to allow user to input several records with common information and only have to enter the common information once?
I am setting up DBMan to be used as a Calendar of Events. Often, we have the same event at multiple locations. I would like for the user who will be entering the information to be able to choose to not only replace a record when using the modify option, but have an option to be able to keep the original and also add a new record with the modifiied information.

In other words, I would like to have a choice with the modify option: to either replace a record, or keep the record, and add a similar one with some of the fields changed.

If anyone needs to see my files, they are at

Does anyone know if this customization is possible?

Thanks,

Elizabeth
