Hi,

Is it possible to use copy data from a dataset which has data in column 6 to column 12 to other dataset and paste it with a overlay in other dataset from column 6 to column 12 without any disruption to other columns data using BNDS and Overlay commands.

I am able to do it within the same dataset by giving MM MM in the command line for the required rows and giving OO OO for the rows to be overlayed.

Thanks and Regards,
Pavan.

Hi Enrico,

I tried it doesn't work, so I want to check in the first if it is possible doing it from one dataset to other.

All I could succeed is first cut/copy the lines from Dataset A and paste them to Dataset B then use the move(MM-MM) with overlay(OO-OO) to achieve it.

Thanks,
Pavan.

This phrase is as senseless and useless as the call to an auto-service:

Not with a command, at least not one I could find in the manual. I think that you must write an edit macro, doing the overlay yourself in the macro. You can get the boundaries by an edit macro command.

Thanks Willy, I just want to be sure.

@Sergeyken - when I said I tried and it didn't work that mean I was not successful in executing it.

and as I said i could do it with copying from dataset A to dataset B and then within the dataset was able to overlay. Since you said it is possible is that how it works or is there an other way?

Thanks,
Pavan

Again (and again): such “explanation” gives to others zero amount of understanding of the issue, and of the problem.
“It did not work” - has no meaning in the software world

I gave you an equivalent sample related to auto-service, but it had no effect...

An edit macro is the only method that springs to mind. No primary edit command that I could find in the manual (you did read the manual, right?)
