Default Trouble creating a Copy Record command on a Form

Hi there,

I'm trying to create a Copy record button on my form but
am not having any luck doing it.
I've tried to use the "Duplicate Record" function in the
Command Button wizard but it's giving me the "Action or
command PasteAppend is not available now."

The form [frmDmJobInfo] is controlled by the query
[qryDmJobTracking]which is comprised of a table & query
[tblDmJobTracking] & [qryDmJobInfo](this query is a combo
of a table [tblDmJobInfo]and another query).

The basic code below is the one you get from the wizard
for the Duplicate Record command button: (I know this code
isn't right for what I need to do, but I'm not sure how to
construct one that will make a copy of the record on that
form [frmDmJobInfo] and paste append it to the proper
tables [tblDmJobTracking] & [tblDmJobInfo] (Both of these
tables have an Autonumber field in them).
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Private Sub cmdCopyDMrecord_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdCopyDMrecord_Click

    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 8, ,
    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 2, ,
    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 5, ,
acMenuVer70 'Paste Append

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_cmdCopyDMrecord_Click

End Sub
