Enables you to determine how to copy source data from a specific module item or specific module data.  The options in this section are available after you after you select and expand a module options in the left section and then select a module item or specific data.  Also, if in the left section, you select Specifications, you can include all source specifications or specifications associated with specific item types.

Include (only available for the Specifications module) — Allows you to copy specifications associated with specific item types that are not reference item types.

Item Type of Specs (only available for the Specifications module) — Displays the item types available for generating specifications (only Instrument and Loop, which are not reference item types).

Data — Indicates the data or item name selection in the left section of the Copy Data from Source dialog box.

Copy selected data — Allows you to copy specific data that you select after you expand the appropriate module in the left section of the dialog box.

 Make sure that the Copy all module data check box is not selected.  This way you copy only the selected data and not the entire module data.  You can select specific items in the Instrument Index and Wiring modules.  Also, you can use this option to copy only the Process Data module or only the Calculation module data by expanding Process Data & Calculation in the left section and selecting a module.

Name prefix — Allows you to enter a new name prefix to be applied to all the copied items.  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 need to modify the 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 prefix to be applied to all the copied items.  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 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 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 boxes:

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

  • No. of chars. — 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 process data and calculation data only) — Determine how the software copies revision data.  The following options are available:

  • Skip — Skips copying the source unit 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 Process Data or Calculation modules.

Prefix (for loop and tag number data only) — Allows you to enter a loop or tag number prefix to be used in the target <unit>.  Use this option when copying loop or tag number data from a <unit> within the same <plant>.  This way you define a distinctive loop or tag number prefix to be used in the target <unit> and avoid creating duplicate loop and tag number prefixes in the <units> of the same <plant>.

  • For tag number items, the option is accessible only if the ISA or Loop standard naming convention for the prefix segment description of tags is COMPONENT PREFIX.  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 standard naming conventions in the source <unit>.  For Flexible standard naming conventions, you can define your target loop and tag number prefixes in the Name prefix box.

Suffix (for loop and tag number data only) — Allows you to enter a loop or tag number suffix to be used in the target <unit>.  Use this option when copying loop or tag number data from a <unit> within the same <plant>.  This way you define a distinctive loop or tag number suffix to be used in the target <unit>.

  • 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 which are different only in the suffix segment, these loop names and tag numbers become identical in the target <unit>, for the new suffix value in the target unit overwrites all the suffix values of the source <unit>.
    For example, if in the Suffix box, 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 standard naming conventions in the source <unit>.  For Flexible standard naming conventions, you can define your target loop and tag number suffixes in the Name suffix box.
