Diane, Sorry for the delay in responding. It isn't a single function, but I confirm that the FM9 FDK can copy "attribute expressions" used in filter-by-attribute from one document to another and can apply a selected expression. I haven't needed to use it, but it should also be able to identify the applied filter and hence copy that setting as well to another document. The relevant properties are documented in the FM8 FDK documentation, so the FM8 FDK should be able to do so as well. --Lynne Lynne A. Price Text Structure Consulting, Inc.
