Need to move multiple fields to a new table - please help!

Okay I have a “list” view that contains a package inventory stored in a
table called addpackages. Attributes include fname, lname,
packagetype, email, phone, etc.

Here’s what I’ve done already:

  1. When you click the last name of a person in the list view simulating
    they are picking the package up, you go to my custom edit view.
<%= link_to addpackage.lname, :action => "edit", :id => addpackage.id %>
  1. Here is my custom edit view:

User must enter initials to claim package:

  1. This all works fine for getting the signature in the addpackages
    table. What I would like to do at this point is copy a few
    attributes(lname, fname, signature, phone) to a table called receipts?
    I’ve already created a relationship between addpackages and receipts, I
    just need help with coding behind this operation. I figure I would
    perform this operation in the addpackage controller under “def edit” but
    I really need a kick start to coding this or someone to tell me this is
    the correct way to do it.

Help will be greatly greatly appreciated!!!
