Can I make a copy of a backup job in Veritas Backup Exec 9.1

I have a client who has an old Veritas Backup Exec 9.1 backup solution.  They've been doing full backups daily but now would like to go to incremental or differential during the week.  I just wanted to make a copy of the job and modify the schedules of both but do not see that option.  I see the ability to copy the job to another media server but they don't have another.  Is there a way to copy the job or will I be creating the job from scratch?

Thanks for the help both of you but I found the solution.  When I clicked the Backup tab rather than use the Backup Wizard or right-click the current job for a Copy option, it started a backup creation process which gave me the option to choose another backup job's selection list to use.  You'd think the Wizard would offer the same but apparently not.  Sorry for the bother.

It's been a long while since i have used 9.1 but if I remember correctly, if you go to the Job Setup tab and right click on the job you can copy it from there an then adjust the schedule on the new copies.

There are ways to copy it to another media server, but I do not remember a way to copy a job in 9.1. It is pretty old and I haven't used it in many years.

Upon researching further I found the solution myself and I gave myself a grade lower than an A because I didn't research thoroughly enough before posting my question.
