ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
---------------
Creating a Project under a new EPS, when selecting the option of "Copy from existing template", Project details entered during creation are over-written by details of Template chosen instead of the new Project ID, Name, and dates selected.  


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Creating a Project under a new EPS should use the new Project ID, Name, and dates rather than using the information from the copied Project.


STEPS
-----------------------
1. In Classic Vew (can be repeated in Standard view as well), highlight an existing EPS.
2. Right click / add / sibling EPS / Save.
3. Highlight newly created EPS.
4. Right click / add Project / (leave Project name as NEWPROJ (or something similar) and date as today's date) /  click on picklist for copy from existing Project or Template.
5. Filter on Templates.
6. Highlight one of the Templates to copy from.
7. Click Create.
8. Click Ok on popup indicating Project was created.
9. Click on EPS tab to refresh list of Projects.
10. Observe the newly added Project has the Project ID of the template copied (with a -1), name of the Template, and start date of the Template rather than the new information selected.
