Provide ability to create a new profile by copying an existing profile.

This would make it easier to create new profiles without having to reenter all of the options.  This would be particularly useful for Job profiles where there are many different options to select and values to fill in.  Once you have a job profile working the way you want for one database, it would be nice to be able to clone that job profile and point it to a different object profile to generate similar jobs for another database.  In that case, you might want to keep all the same options, and only change the generated job or member name.

    Thanks. I was digging through the manual and eventually figured out the Export was the way to accomplish this.

    Sorry, I typed in the comment but did not send it....

    This ability exists in the EXPORT command.

    The EXPORT does not have to have a Dataset destination and can be used to copy a Job Profile to a new name on the same subsystem.

    The status is marked as "Functionality already exists." Can someone explain how to use this functionality, as there is no option on the panels to do this?
