Copying Objects Overview
The Workflow Manager, Designer, and Repository Manager provide a CopyWizard that you use to copy repository objects. You can copy repository objectssuch as workflows, worklets, tasks, sessions, mappings, mapplets, sources,targets, and transformations. You can also copy segments of workflows or mappings.You can copy objects within the same folder, to a different folder, or to a differentrepository. If you want to copy an object to another folder, you must first open thetarget folder.
To ensure no data is lost when you copy an object from one repository toanother, you can copy objects between repositories with the PowerCenter Client.This is done when the code page of the originating repository is identical to or asubset of the destination repository code page.
The Copy Wizard checks for conflicts in the target folder and provides choices toresolve the conflicts. For example, if an item exists in the target folder, adescription of the conflict appears in the Conflict Message section of the screen.The Copy Wizard displays possible resolutions in the Resolution area of thescreen. For a duplicate object you can rename, reuse, replace, or skip copyingthe object.
