Copying a Calculation View

We have a package consisting of Attribute Views, and Calculation Views that consume those Attribute Views.


    > Dept1

        > ProjectA

            > Attribute Views

                > A_AT

                > B_AT

                > C_AT

            > Calculation Views

                > AB_CV

                > BC_CV

                > CA_CV

I now want to 'clone' this entire package to a new location , e.g:


     > Dept2

          > Project A

Now I am ok with copying the Attribute views, that's straight forward enough.

But how the heck could I copy the Calculation views ?
If I just use right-click copy/paste to the new package... they still  point to the original project for the Attribute View sources.

So how to 're' point ?

Frustrated, I did begin manually recreating the Cvs in the new location, but there are hundreds of fields that need renaming, and I can't even copy/paste the field names from the original views.

Any advice/pointers much appreciated.

Many Thanks

    Hi Simon,

    You can export the package in HANA Developer Mode and then all views will be available in xml file format.

    Then you can change folder name(current package name) and import them and they will be imported in new package
