Auto-enter previous not working...?

The auto enter from previous record only works in the current session. If you close out and re-open the file there is no previous record. You would need to set up an open script to find the last record created and set those value(s) in some global fields then use the globals to populate the fields.

If it's really really important for you to have this feature, you can do it with an autoenter-calculation based on a serial number relationship in the current file. The basic idea is that each record is related to the previously entered field by means of a serial number field. The autoenter calculation looks up the previous record's field value and autoenters it into the new record. It's kind of messy and I don't recommend doing it unless it's critical to have.
