Copy items from a search result to paste in a different screen within App

I have a search box that allows me to search for contacts.  Does PA have the ability to use a button to copy that data and transfer to a new screen within that app?

I want to be able to use the Plus symbol to copy the data fields and paste them in a different screen.

 

Thanks everyone!

You can create a variable that will hold the item in the textbox so it could be used in another screen:

So on the OnSelect of the Plus sign: Set(varCopy,TextBoxName.Text)

 

So you can use varCopy in another screen which will hold whatever will entered in the textbox

Thanks.  Trying now.  Assume I can add more than just one text box to the copy?

Yes. You can give further details
