Clone Modeled Sheets

Explains how to copy modeled sheets.

When you clone a modeled sheet, you create a copy of an existing modeled sheet. Cloning a sheet copies columns, dimensions, lookups, sheet settings, and all the accounts, including names and codes. The full account code includes the new sheet's prefix. 

Before You Begin

  • Required permission: Model Management Access > Model.
  • An existing modeled sheet to clone.
  • New to modeled sheets? See Modeled Sheet Overview to get started.

Cloning modeled sheets is one way to build a modeled sheet. You can also upload modeled sheets, build one from scratch, or use the modeled sheet templates.

How You Get There

Clone Modeled Sheets

  1. From the sheet list, select the New Sheet button. 
  2. Enter a unique sheet name for your instance
  3. Select Create new sheet and select Modeled from the drop-down next to the Create New Sheet radio button. Do not select any of the templates from the drop-down next to this. 
  4. Add an account code prefix for all the modeled accounts of the sheet.
  5. Select the Clone existing sheet radio button. All your existing modeled sheets appear in the drop-down.
