Copy harness.

Associates,

I am attempting to generate family instances of an assembly which
contains a wire harness. Unfortunately, the instances involve multiple
locations for some of the connection points and when I generate the
instances the harness remains routed to the generic location of the
connection points. Furthermore, the instances do not necessarily share a
common subassembly to which the connection points are assembled. For this
reason I decided to create copies of the harness in question and simply
suppress the unwanted ones in each particular instance. However I do not
seem to be able to copy the harness. I have tried opening the generic
and, with the appropriate connection points displayed, copy the harness
but I am unable to select any connection points on the model. I tried
opening the instance and as soon as I got to the step where I select the
connection points my model disappeared. I tried copying the harness part
in windows to a new name and copying it in thinking that perhaps you
couldn't copy an harness in that already exists in the model, no luck. I
would even be happy if I could just do an exact repeat copy of the harness
and then I could reroute the connections later. Is there some sort of
magic trick to copying a harness? If so, would someone be able to share
the secret. Thanks.
