I have set up a job in sql server agent that has 70 steps (individual queries). I would like to duplicate this job and change various jobs to be used in the future. Is there a way to copy my original job and save it as a new job. For example my job is Process_all inbound and I want to copy that and save it as Rename_certain inbound.

Thanks as always for any suggestions and help

I feel that you can generate and execute the script and use new name for the job.
Thereafter you can change the steps from Enterprise manager / SSMS.
