Yes, it is possible to use one data set to create two different Details templates. You could also use one data set to create two different Repeater templates.
However, that practice is not recommended.
In the short term, you might save some time by creating multiple templates from one data set. Long term, you could be creating a lot of extra maintenance and repair work if you happen to change a data set (e.g. delete a column) and forget that it is linked to multiple website templates.
The data set page does provide any indication about which web pages are linked to the information in the cells.
Cloning a data set
Instead of using one data set for multiple web pages, copying a data set is a possible time-saving alternative.
- Go the Data page.
- Hover the mouse pointer on a data set file name. A menu displays.
- Click Clone.
- Enter a new file name in the popup box.
