Copying Designer Objects

Copying Designer Objects

You can copy Designer objects within the same folder, to a different folder, or to a different repository. You can copy any of the Designer objects such as sources, targets, mappings, mapplets, transformations, and dimensions. You must open the target folder before you can copy objects to it.
Use the Copy Wizard in the Designer to copy objects. The Copy Wizard checks for conflicts in the target folder and provides choices to resolve the conflicts. For example, if an item already exists in the target folder, a description of the problem displays in the screen. The Copy Wizard displays possible resolutions. For a duplicate object, you can rename, reuse, replace, or skip copying the object.
To configure display settings and functions of the Copy Wizard, click Tools > Options in the Designer.
You can import objects from an XML file through the Import Wizard in the Designer.
The Import Wizard provides the same options to resolve conflicts as the Copy Wizard.
