Duplicate_32_hil To duplicate the currently selected product on the Master Entry Sheet, press the Duplicate Product button on the main toolbar. Alternatively, you can also select this option from the Edit menu.


Type a model number to identify the duplicated product. Optionally, you can also enter a dash code. Each product must have a unique model number and dash code combination, and this information cannot be changed once the product is created.


For example, you could only have one product in your database with a model number of "12345" without using a dash code. Using dash codes, however, you could have multiple products with a model number of "12345" accompanied by extra dash code information. For example, you could have "12345 : Red", "12345 : Blue", and "1234 : 001" all in the same database.


Speed-Quote will warn you if you try to give a duplicated product a model number and dash code that already exists in the current database.


Once you have typed a unique model number (and optionally a dash code) for this product, click the Duplicate Product button (or press the Enter key on your keyboard).


Duplicated products contain all the information of the original, with only the model number and dash code being different. From this point, you can change any information unique to this product. Duplication is a very handy feature if you want to create similar products.
