If i understand your question correctly you would like to combine 2 process book displays together , would you tell me which version of process book are you running?
Thanks for getting back to me.
I am using 3.2 here, and yes I want to add a newly created display to an existing PI processbook. Not sure how to proceed.

There are two ways of integrating a display (.pdi file) into an existing Pi Processbook (.piw file):
Either you can create a link to the display in the processbook by following this procedure:
Just click on New --> ProcessBook Entry --> Link / OS command --> Browse for your .pdi.
Or, if you want to have the display file contained in the processbook file, you could:
From the .piw file, click on Insert and select Display (a new display window pops up). Then Select All from the ProcessBook Display (.pdi) file that you want to move to the ProcessBook (.piw) file, copy and paste to the new display window in your .piw file.
Does this answer your question?
Yes this was really helpful. Thank you. Highly appreciate it.
I have a display with controls and vb coding. It is not that easy to copy into a new display in a processbook. Is it the only way to get the display into an existing processbook?
I prefer to have the displays in a piw and not as separate pdi files.
