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

  1. In the lower-right section of the Copy Data from Source dialog box, select Copy selected data.

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

     Make sure that you do not select the Copy all module data check box.  If you do, click Clear All.  Clicking this button discards all the settings you have made and you must start again.

  2. In the Name prefix field, type a new name prefix to be applied to all the copied items.

  3. In the Name suffix field, type a new name suffix to be applied to all the copied items.

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

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

  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. In the Prefix field, to avoid creating duplicate loop and tag number prefixes in the units of the same <plant>, type a loop or tag number prefix to be used in the target <unit>.

    • This option is available when copying loop or tag number data from a <unit> within the same <plant>.  Also, it is available only for those items for which the prefix naming convention segment is set as COMPONENT PREFIX in the ISA or Loop standard.

    • For loop items, the option is accessible only if the ISA or Loop standard naming convention for the prefix segment description of loops is LOOP PREFIX.

    • This option is not applicable if you use Flexible naming conventions in the source <unit>.  For Flexible naming conventions, you can define your target loop and tag number prefixes in the Name prefix field.

  9. In the Suffix field, type a loop or tag number suffix to define a distinctive loop or tag number suffix to be used in the target <unit>.

    • This option is available when copying loop or tag number data from a <unit> within the same <plant>.  For tag number items, the option is accessible only if the ISA or Loop standard naming convention for the suffix segment description of tags is COMPONENT SUFFIX.

    • For loop items, the option is accessible only if the ISA or Loop standard naming convention for the suffix segment description of loops is LOOP SUFFIX.

    • If, in your source <unit>, there are loop names or tag numbers that differ only in their suffix segments, these loop names and tag numbers become identical in the target <unit>.  The new suffix value in the target <unit> overwrites all the suffix values of the source <unit>.  For example, if in the Suffix field, you type 5, loop names 101-F-100\1, 101-F-100\2, 101- F-100\3 in the source <unit> become 101-F-100\5 in the target <unit>.  This option is not applicable if you use Flexible naming conventions in the source <unit>.  For Flexible naming conventions, you can define your target loop and tag number suffixes in the Name suffix field.

  10. In the left section, select other specific data, 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.
