Any chance you could explain why yo want to pass 50 fields between tables - this sounds like you should be using a relationship or lookups.

Ive got an order form for sales people to use for their orders. when they finish an order i need to submit it to the order processing. I wanted to create a new record in the order processing when they submit their finished orders. I thought the best way to do this was to submit a new record request and populate the fields with the script parameter.

If the entry form and the main table are in the same FILE then you can use $variables in a script to effectively copy the entry form entries and then switch to a layout using the main table and write a new record and the main table fields in the main table.

See my example
