How do I utilize the copy function for records in tables that have "looping relationships"?

I have an older copy button that works:
 "javascript:void(window.open('" & URLRoot() &"tools/copyParentChildren.html?dbid=" & Dbid() & "&recurse=1" & "&dest=new" & "&namefid=16" & "&rid=" & [Task ID#] & "','copyRecursive','top=240,left=320,width=400,height=150,location=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no'))"

When I try to use the "new" method to create a copy button, I get an error regarding the looping.  The formula above works even with looping issues.  

I have a table with over 500 fields in it...Plan Take/Offs.  I need to be able to copy a plan take/off to create a new plan take/off.  I would love some help!  What info do you need to help me accomplish this?  Thx

Can you explain why you need to create a new copy button?  Maybe we can copy this one and "fix" it to do what you want.
