Copying project items from other ACL projects

You can copy ACL project items into your current project from any ACL project on your computer or on an accessible network drive. You can copy multiple project items simultaneously if they are of the same type – for example, you could copy multiple scripts simultaneously. If you want to copy items of different types – for example, scripts and tables – you need to repeat the procedure below for each item type.

If you want to import a project item that exists as a separate file outside an ACL project, see Importing project items.

To copy a project item from another ACL project:

  1. Open the project that will contain the copied item or items.
  2. In the Overview tab of the Navigator, right-click the ACL project entry, or a project folder, and select Copy from another Project > [Project Item Type] where Project Item Type is one of the following options:
    • Table

    • View

    • Script

    • Workspace

  3. In the Locate Project File dialog box, locate and select the ACL project you want to copy the project items from and click Open.
  4. In the Import dialog box, complete any of the following tasks to add project items to the To project_name list:
    • Double-click an individual project item.

    • Ctrl+click multiple project items and then click the right-arrow button.

    • Click Add All to add all the project items.

    You can remove project items from the To project_name list by double-clicking an individual project item, by using Ctrl+click to select multiple project items and then clicking the left-arrow button, or by clicking Clear All.

  5. Click OK to copy the project item or items into the current project.

    If an item with the same name already exists in the project, the copied item is given an incrementing numeric suffix.
