Click Inventory and warehouse management > Common > Formula and select the formula line. Then click Functions and select Copy.

Use this form to select a formula version in base data or formula lines in production, and then copy the information. You can define where you want to place the copied information. You can also define whether you want the information to be added to the new location or to replace existing lines in the new location.

NoteNote

The following conditions exist when you use multiple sites:

  • When you copy an existing formula version to a different site, the warehouse on the formula lines is cleared. However, if the site that you copy from and the site that you copy to are the same, the warehouse is not cleared.

  • When you copy an existing route to a different site, the operations resource on the route lines is cleared, and the default operations resources for the route relations are also cleared.
