When duplicating a sheet or views to specify the uniqueness of a duplicate, function add the numbering to the sheet number or view name. Numbering is added at the beginning or end of the sheet number or view name, depending on the option selected in the window. You can also add a prefix and a suffix for the number and name of the duplicate sheet or view. In this case, the function will continue to number without taking into account the prefix and suffix of the sheet number. For example, if you duplicate a sheet with the number 1$А50, the prefix В- will result in a new sheet number В-2$А50
