You can also use the ditto key on similar fields in a ProFile table. This is the backwards apostrophe key found in the upper left corner of most keyboards to the left of the number 1 key. Press the ditto key to copy and paste the contents of a similar field above or to the left of the current field. This is especially useful in tables when you have a long list of identical entries.
