Copying container objects from one qvw to another

Hi folks,

I'm facing trouble copying the container objects from one qvw to the other. I found the object ids to be differing when I'm copying them.

Is there any way to avoid the problem since I've too many objects inside the container and it will take very very long time to recreate them.

Kindly help me.

Steps to copy objects inside a container from one QVW to another....

1) Right click on object inside container

2) Select "Clone" (This creates a copy of object outside container)

3) Change object ID of cloned object to value that is referenced in container properties

4) Copy object and paste in destination QVW.

Drawback to this method is you have to copy the individual objects in a container one at a time, but at least you do not have to recreate!
