    This was a thread from Feb 2004 and I finally got a chance to create this
    macro. I am sure that there are a few bugs to work out but it works pretty
    sweet.

    Problem
    SW replace feature is lacking the ability to replace a part with an exact
    copy of itself. Without a hassle of window flopping and directory
    searching.

    Challenge
    Write a program to mimic the current functionality of the replace feature
    except replace with copy

    Time
    I hadn't had the time but this week I needed to do exactly this and I was at
    the end of my pile of work so I delved into it.

    Solution

    The program has a selection list that will list the components you have
    selected
    A new file box that contains the name and path desired for the copy of the
    part.
    A browse button for browsing to the desired location
    Checkboxes for the options I felt like incorporating.
    and of course your typical action buttons.

    The program will create a copy of the first selected component, and replace
    every selected component with that copy.

    I have done minor testing in 2004 and presume it will work without a problem
    in 2005, but it will need to be edited to work with earlier versions,
    because of the constants mostly.

    If anyone is interested drop me an e-mail
    remove misspelled erroneous to reply
