Clone (MDStore Interface)


  This feature will be removed in the next version of Microsoft SQL Server. Do not use this feature in new development work, and modify applications that currently use this feature as soon as possible.

The Clone method of the MDStore interface copies the property values and optionally the collections of major and minor objects of an existing object to a target object of the same class type.

Applies To: clsAggregation, clsCube, clsDatabase, clsPartition

object.Clone(ByVal TargetObject As MDStore, [ByVal Options As CloneOptions = cloneMajorChildren])

An existing MDStore object.


One of the values of the CloneOptions enumeration. If no value is specified, the cloneMajorChildren option is used. For more information, see CloneOptions.

The Clone method, depending on the clone option specified in Options, copies properties and minor objects to a new MDStore object with the same ClassType property value.
