This dialog box lets you copy the contents from one project into another. To copy a project, specify the source [From] and destination [To] projects, then click OK.
[From] Project name
The name of the source project being copied. If more than one project exists, you can choose a project name from the drop-down list.
[To] (Existing or New) project
You can copy to either an Existing or a New project name and location.
The name of the destination project being copied to.
When copying to an existing project, you need to choose a project name from the existing project names drop-down list.
When copying to a new project, you need to create a new and unique name for the project. The project name is restricted to 64 characters, and can contain any characters other than the semi-colon (;) or single quote ('). Since the project name is a unique identifier, CitectSCADA will not permit you to create or copy to a project with an existing same name.
After the new project is created, you can change the Name through the Project Properties.
When copying to an existing project location, you can choose to delete the existing contents of the destination project, including subdirectories, before the source project is copied, by checking both the Clear location before copying, and the Clear subdirectories check boxes. This removes many files that may be left behind to interfere with the copied project. If you do not clear the project location before copying, only common files in the destination project are overwritten.
[To] Clear location before copying
Specifies to delete the contents of the existing destination project before copying the source project to the destination location. This removes many files that may be left behind to interfere with the copied project.
[To] Clear subdirectories
Specifies to delete the contents of the sub directories of the existing destination project before copying the source project to the destination location. This removes many files that may be left behind to interfere with the copied project.
The directory path where the destination project files are stored. As the Name field is entered, the directory is automatically generated in the Location field. You might override this by manually entering the location or clicking Browse.
Check that the project names and location are correct in the confirmation dialog box. Click Yes to copy the project, or No to cancel.
