Hi indalkar.dattatray,


Rather than copying the pattern, you can likely just pattern the first pattern, which will create the copies in the correct  place.


Depending upon how you created the hole pattern in the part file, you might also be able to use the Feature Pattern Select option to just place the bolt into every hole in the part pattern automatically.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
