The key items for How to clone a dataset are What is dataset cloning?, Selecting a dataset to be cloned, Confirmation of Cloning, Dataset cloned successfully, .Description of What is dataset cloning?: <div>When we clone a dataset (call it <span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">dataset-X</span>), we are creating another copy (<span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">dataset-X-clone</span>) of that dataset.</div><div></div><div><img src="https://assets.rlist.io/temporary/images/icnbb/badge_stars_24.png" class="desc-emoji-icon"> <span style="color: rgb(206, 0, 0);">What happens during dataset cloning?</span> All the <span style="font-weight: bold;">data items</span> of dataset-X are copied over to dataset-X-clone. However, dataset-X-clone will be a different and independent dataset from dataset-X and any future changes to the items of dataset-X-clone <b>will not</b> affect the items of dataset-X and vice-versa.</div><div></div><div><img src="https://assets.rlist.io/temporary/images/icnbb/badge_stars_24.png" class="desc-emoji-icon"> <span style="color: rgb(206, 0, 0);">What is not copied during dataset cloning?</span> The lists associated with dataset -X are not copied over to dataset-X-clone. Thus, at the point of cloning, dataset-X-clone will not be associated with any list. Thus, you can manually associate one or more lists to dataset-X-clone.</div><div></div>. Description of Selecting a dataset to be cloned: Click on the <b>Clone </b>button of the dataset that you wish to clone.. Description of Confirmation of Cloning: <p>A confirmation prompt will appear, confirming if you indeed wish to clone this dataset.</p><p>Click <b>Yes, clone</b> to proceed (or <b>Cancel </b>if you have changed your mind.)</p>. Description of Dataset cloned successfully: <p>Once the cloning is successful, the clone will be named with the title of the original dataset and additionally suffixed with "<font color="#0000ff">- Clone</font>".</p><p>In this example, we cloned <font color="#0000ff">DB_DATASET_SAMPLE</font>. As a result, a clone with the title <font color="#0000ff">DB_DATASET_SAMPLE - Clone</font> is created. </p><hr><p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(156, 156, 148);">END OF TUTORIAL</span></p>.
