Enables you to determine how to copy <unit> data from a module.

Module — Shows the module data name that you selected in the left section of the Copy Data from Source dialog box.

Copy all module data — Allows you to copy data and associations pertinent to the module that you selected in the left section of the dialog box.

 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.

 Do not click OK until you have made all your selections.

Name prefix — Allows you to enter a new name prefix to be applied to all the copied items of the selected module.  When copying data from a <unit> within the same plant, you have to make sure that you do not have duplicate names for the module items that you are going to copy.  Therefore, you have to modify the module item names.  You can do this by adding either a prefix or a suffix to the item name.

Name suffix — Allows you to enter a new name suffix to be applied to all the copied items of the selected module.  When copying data from a <unit> within the same <plant>, you have to make sure that you do not have duplicate names for the module items that you are going to copy.  Therefore, you have to modify the module item names.  You can do this by adding either a prefix or a suffix to the item name.

Substituting name values — To avoid having duplicate module item names, you can modify their names by changing a part of the name.  You can do this by substituting a part of the name string with the value that you type in the following fields:

  • Character location — Allows you to enter the number of character in the name string from where you want the substitution to start.

  • Number of characters — Allows you to enter the number of characters in the name string to be substituted.

  • Value — Allows you to enter the new value that will substitute the old one in the name string.

Revision Copying Options (for the Process Data, Calculation, Specifications, and Loop Drawings modules only) — Determine how the software copies revision data.  The following options are available:

  • Skip — Skips copying the source revisions.

  • Set new — Allows you to click Copy Revisions and open a dialog box where you can set new revisions for the target <unit>.

  • All existing — Allows you to copy all the revisions that exist in the selected module.

 Revision copying options are not retained when you reopen the Copy Data from Source dialog box.

Copy on plant hierarchy level (for the Wiring module only) — Determine the level on which you want to copy the wiring data.  You must select the highest 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>.  When copying data from <units> belonging to the same <plant>, you can select the highest or the lowest (recommended) level of your plant hierarchy.  However, if you select the lowest level, you need to modify the name strings to avoid duplicate names in the Wiring module.  The following options are available:

  • Highest — Allows you to copy data from <units> belonging to different <plants>.

  • Lowest — Allows you to copy data from <units> belonging to the same <plant>.
