Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This site:

indicates that the “dup” key is the same as a control sequence (ctrl + D). You might be able to map the “dup” to a function key.

Here is a freeware program to assign “hot-keys”

From WaltZ400:

If you are doing 5250 emulation through Client Access the shift-Insert keystroke is mapped to do a dup function.
