Copying and Modifying a List Data Source

As mentioned earlier, list data sources are auto-enumerated sources that are in the Data Source Library simply by virtue of being in the site. What this means is that you cannot delete the data source for a list from the Data Source Library without actually deleting the list from the site. In addition, you cannot modify the properties of a list data source without first copying it to create a new entry in the Data Source Library.

In this exercise, you will make a copy of the Customers list data source and modify its properties to create a new data source.
