Veritas 10d copying a job

i am using veritas 10d at one of my sites which has a complex data backup routine which has taken me weeks to perfect. At the moment they are doing full backups every night and changing the tapes daily, however no one is in over the weekends to change the tape so saturday and sundays job fails. So I plan to run incremental jobs on saturday and sunday on fridays tapes.

My problem is that i dont want to sit for an hour recreating an addtional job to backup the same data, so is there a way to duplicate the current daily backups jobs and then modify the day it runs and the job type without doing it manually

Most of the work in creating the jobs is tuning the selection lists and they should already be available in the bottom pane of the job setup pane. So create a Sat/Sun policy (r.click in middle window new policy, click new template and select backup template, there are a few properties to set from the index on left pane of new backup job template, mainly schedule, general (for incremental), Exchange or SQL (for incremental). It automatically then pops up new job using policy window when completed the policy and you can select all previous your selection lists.
