EditForm to create a new record

Hello, 

I am building an app and I wanted to add a feature where a user can edit the a field in a form and then submit it as a new record to an excel spreadsheet. However when I try to implement it I can editing the same record, I want the changes value to be recorded in a new record.
So basically,  Can I have a form that gets the data like an EditForm and then posts it as a new record like a NewForm ? 

 

Thanks in advance!

no, you need to use NewForm. if you want to pass existing values, you can set the default property of the fields. For example, if you get there from selecting a record in a gallery, you could set the default value to gallery1.selected.field.Value and set the default of the form fields to that value.
