Base: Anyone have a Ctrl-tick macro to quickly copy from field above? [closed]

I noticed that in Calc you can type control-tick (ctrl-') to quickly copy from the cell above. MS Access has a similar feature.

Does anyone have the code already working to make Base do what Calc and Access do?

In other words, each column (or field) in your table needs to have a Key Pressed event hooked up to some code which looks for a Ctrl-tick, and when found copies from the cell above.

I know this is a sort of dumb little thing, but it would be really handy when entering tabular data.

Before I work on it, I was hoping someone else had already done this and would kindly share it.
