I have two records that I am trying to combine into one record. Each record is uniquely linked to a number of other records. What I’d like to do is copy the data from one record and paste it into the other record, without replacing what’s already in the second record.

I don’t understand 100% what you mean, but if you don’t want to manually add data from one record to the other, you would need a script in my opinion to help you out. But please specify what you’re trying to achieve :slightly_smiling_face:
