What's the actual command called? Or if you don't remember,
where exactly did you pick it from in a menu?

the command line was in autocad 2005 :CopyBlockDefAndAssign

you coluld pick it from the shortcut menu in drawing area when a block was selected.
This command did a useful thing, copy a block, rename it and then let you modified it. at the end of proccess you get 2 blocks: the original and a new one that come from the first.

thank you so much and sorry for my english

Your English is fine my friend.

No such command in any plain AutoCAD version, 2005 or 2007
or anything in between or before: perhaps you had an add-on,
or a customization that you did not copy over?

HELP in AutoCAD shows you all the core commands available.

Why not use the BE (Block Edit) command, select the block in question,
save the block with a new name, and edit away...
