I have a very detailed InfoPath form with workflows that's currently live to the public and being used on a daily basis. I want to make changes (some minor and some major) to the forms and workflow but of course I don't want to do that on the live form.

Is there a way to duplicate (or clone) the entire InfoPath form, as well as the workflows, so that I can make and test the changes offline without effecting the live site?  If so, how can this be done?

FYI, I don't know if this effects anything but I'm still on a SharePoint 2007 platform.

The form is easy to clone. Save a local copy with a new name and then just publish to an alternative Document Library

The workflow would need to be created on the new test library.  Not sure if it can be copied or not since I have someone else build the workflows.

Found a step by step for it. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointcustomizationlegacy/thread/b034a5ba-abc8-4396-99cc-ce38f9eb7747
