When copying a project for File generation there are no tables, and the ‘table’ order for the rows in the file are lost.

When the project includes FD layouts for File generation, after a repository copy, there are no tables and the ‘table’ order for the rows in the file are lost. All rows are set to seq number 1.


If the originating repository includes a project that has FD layouts for File generation, the resulting copy does not have any tables, and the ‘table’ order for the rows in the file are lost, there is no way to get this order back as recalculate order does not work. 

The only work around to get table order back is to re-register the tables - at which point it is pointless to copy between the repositories.
