Hi Jacque,
I originally had the control I wanted to copy (it's a group actually) in a
resources stack within my application.  That worked fine in my dev stack
but the released stack is password protected so I can't copy from it.  And
of course I didn't figure that out until the last minute after adding
password protection.

Of course I could have created an unprotected stack to contain the group
but I chose to go the cprop route because all my resources would still be
in my resources stack, just seemed tidier that way.  And I will admit to
some bloody mindedness since I fail to see why I should not be able to copy
a control from a password protected stack if it has no script attached to
it.... but that's another story.
