Copying One-Time-Dates between Holidays Sets

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

You will often need to create special holidays sets for custom diaries. In these cases, most one-time-dates of the new holidays set will be similar to the ones in an existing holidays set.

 

To copy existing one-time-dates rules into another holidays set :

 

Open the Holidays Manager.

 

Select the holidays set into which you want the copied holidays rules to be inserted.

 

Select the One-Time-Dates tab.

 

Use the More... button, and then the Copy One-Time-Dates From menu item.

A dialog appears which allows you to copy one or more one-time-dates. On the left is a TreeView containing all the holidays sets. On the right is a list of one-time-dates contained in the holidays set selected on the left.

 

Use the "Recurse Subsets" option to list the one-time-dates of the selected holidays set and all its subsets. This is useful to be able to copy one-time-dates from different holidays sets (if you wish to copy holidays from the COUNTRIES folder, you must use Recurse Subsets). You can select many one-time-dates by holding the CTRL key while clicking.

 

When copying one-time-dates from one set to the other make sure you tell Q++ how Holidays Symbols should be copied over. The RadioGroup at the bottom left of the dialog lets you choose to copy none of the holidays symbols (the default setting), or use those of the one-time-date being copied (ie. a perfect copy, only useful if you are copying within the same holidays set or a subset), or set the same holidays symbols for all one-time-dates being copied over.

 

 

If you want to make a duplicate of all, or most, of the one-time-dates of a holidays set :

 

Select the holidays set you wish to copy

 

Un-select the "recurse subsets" option

 

Click on the SELECT ALL button.

 

Click on the OK button to confirm that you wish to copy all the selected one-time-dates into the holidays set selected in the Holidays Manager.
