Origin provides a quick yet powerful way to clone current workbook/sheet when importing data, so that each new data will be imported to workbook/worksheet with same customization and analysis.

4. Click OK button to import multiple files. Each data file is stored in a new workbook with same analysis done as in prototype workbook.
