  1. Open the Copy Data from Source dialog box.  For details, see Select the Source Plant Hierarchy Item for Copying Data.

  2. In the upper-right section of the Copy Data from Source dialog box, select Copy all module data.

    • The upper-right section of the Copy Data from Source dialog box displays only the options that are required for copying data, depending on the module you select in the left section.  The options that are irrelevant to the selected module are read-only.

    • When you define data copying settings for the Loop Drawings module, the Copy all module data check box does not apply to CAD drawing blocks associated with instrument tags or loops.  CAD blocks is Smart Instrumentation are defined per <plant>.  When copying Loop Drawings module data to another <plant>, if your source instruments include instrument blocks assigned manually or loop blocks, these blocks are not created in the target <plant>.  On the other hand, instrument blocks associated with tags via instrument type are created in the target <plant> regardless of whether this check box is selected or cleared.

  3. In the Name prefix field, type a new name prefix to be applied to all the copied items of the selected module.

  4. In the Name suffix field, type a new name suffix to be applied to all the copied items of the selected module.

    SHARED Tip Specifying a prefix, a suffix, or both is required when copying the <unit> module data within the same <plant>.  This way you avoid creating duplicate module item names.

  5. To avoid having duplicate module item names, in the Char. location data field, type the number of characters from the start of the name string where you want the substitution to start from.

  6. In the No. of chars. data field, type the number of characters in the name string to be substituted.

  7. In the Value field, type a new value that will substitute a part of the module item name string.

  8. If required, set revision copying options.  For details, see Set Revisions for Target Plant Hierarchy Item.

  9. Do one of the following to define the level on which you want to copy the Wiring module data:

    • Click Highest when copying data from units belonging to different plants.  You must select the highest plant hierarchy level when copying data from <units> belonging to different <plants>.  This is required because most wiring data is defined either per <area> or per <plant>.

    • Click Lowest when copying the source and the target <units> belonging to the same <plant>.

      SHARED Tip When the source and the target <units> belong to the same <plant>, you can select either the highest or the lowest plant hierarchy level.  However, if you select to copy data on the lowest level, you should modify the name strings to avoid duplicate names in the Wiring module (see steps 5 through 7 in this procedure to learn how to modify the name string).

  10. In the left section, select another module, and repeat this procedure.

  11. If needed, click Options to set naming options for wiring items in the target <unit>.  For details, see Set Wiring Naming Options for Target Plant Hierarchy Item.

     Make sure that you define the settings described in this procedure for all the required modules and module items before clicking OK.  After you click OK, canceling the copying process can corrupt the data in the target <unit> and render the <unit> unusable.

  12. Click OK to close the Copy Data from Source dialog box and monitor the progress of copying the source data.
